Hi,

I have read through many posts on this forum and there are mainly 2 BOOKS which are recommended apart from other material which is required.

1. Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Technology Study Guide -- by Mark Cade, Simon Roberts

2.Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Study Guide (Exam 310-051) -- by Paul Allen, Joseph Bambara;

Could the people who have cleared part I recommend the BETTER one as per their experience.

This information would be very helpful to me and other new members.

Thanks,
VS

In case you have been working in J2EE space for quite some time, then Mark Cade should suffice. I just browsed Cade book a couple of times. In addition there are few popular notes, like, Ramu's notes, balaji's notes etc, which can also be glanced thru once. You can find these notes on scea_prep@yahoogroups site.

thanks,
Nikhil.

Nikhil, Thanks for the reply. I am working in the J2EE space for some time now. Recently I bought Barbara but have not heard any good reviews on that on this forum. People seem to recommend Cade.
So I thought it would be best to ask the Part-I successful people.

I have to agree with N Sharma. Having been working for a few years in the J2EE space, Cade was more than sufficient as a brush-up before my Part I exam. I haven't taken a gander at the other book to have an opinion on it.

I used the Cade book but I heavily supplemented it with other reading and I had been using aspects J2EE for many years.

I got a little lucky and had a 100% on part I.

I recently cleared my Part-I I had Cade book later when I saw Paul Allen, I found Paul allen book much exhaustive with around 600 pages. I liked Allen book too much. So, as per my sugesstion I strongly recommend you to go through Paul Allen ... believe me its really excellent book.
