Has anyone read the new book by Allen and Bambara:

Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for Java EE Study Guide, 2nd Edition

The reviews on Amazon are horrible, but I think those are all for the first edition. This edition was just published (July 12, 2007).

Is this new book aimed at the new exam?

I have a copy but haven't read it all yet.

I got it because the publisher said it was for the new exam, but it's an updated version for the existing SCEA exams.

There's information on newer technologies that those needed for the old exam, including EJB 3.0, but it's not targeted at the SCEA 5 tests.

Eventually, I'll finish reading it and do a review for JavaLobby.

I got the book and only the test questions were useful. I read only the two minute drills as well. Otherwise the book was not that good. Dont know about the second edition and I dont plan to buy it
