Hi All,

Any Pointers to starting a preparation for SCEA will be highly appreciated.
I did leaf through the 'Resources' Section but that's a big list.Do, we have any brain friendly books[aka Head First Series] on this?

Any personal learning experiences will be helpful

Regards,
Rahul

There is no one stop book for the SCEA and there shouldnt be one in my opinion. You can try the architecture book by Mark Cade - Sun press, couple that with the UML book from Martin fowler and Mastering EJB by Ed Roman. The only brain friendly book that can assist you in your pursuit is the head first design patterns book which I would highly recommend.

I started out by reading the
Cade&Roberts SCEA Study Guide, and used that to discover what I needed to study more. I then proceeded to read (not in detail) the GoF Design Patterns book and the UML Distilled book, before I started on the Whizlabs SCEA Exam Simulator.

For GOF, I am reading book from "Head First". I have the book from GOF folks in the shelf for years, but I was never able to move beyond few pages.Too complicated for my brain to understand.HF is very novice-friendly.

just my opinion.
