Hi Olawale,

I suggest you check SCEA FAQ | SCEA Links mentioned on top of SCEA forum, that would be the first starting point.

All the best !!!

Without any new books specifically targeted for SCEA5, you can look at going over the old standards:

Small SCEA Guide by Cade
Big SCEA Guide by Sun
Design Patterns by Sun
J2EE Design Patterns by Sun

Suggested Books for SCEA JEE5 Certification Success

Plus, you need to know about EJB3 and JSF. That'll require some digging through online tutorials and summaries. Knowledge of the latest web services standards is important too.

It's a tough exam, especially part I, because it pulls from so many pieces. It'd be very difficult to estimate someone's required study time.

Best of luck, and post questions often!

It's very useful. It's what most of the people taking the SCEA JEE5 beta used.
