Hi,

This is my first post in SCEA forum. Last week I cleared SCWCD exam and now I was planning to go for ultimate SCEA Exam. I have planned to go for SCEA since long so I have purchased SCEA book "Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Study Guide (Exam 310-051)" by Paul Allen, Joseph J. Bambara

But I was shocked when I checked sun website and found that 310-051 has been depricated and new exam 310-052 has been introduced.

Can some one please guide me whether I can use the same book for 310-052?
(like I did for SCWCD 5 because SCWCD 1.4 and SCWCD 5 had same syllabus)

There are still some sections (if you look at the objectives closely) which you can still refer to your SCEA guide book. But please make sure to read other books as well. There are tons of new topics which you will need to study also from other books. (Core J2EE Patters, JSF, JPA, EJB 3, Web Services to name a few).

You might want to visit this SCEA 5 Amazon Store for more suggested readings for SCEA 5.

I did not find this book particularly useful even for the old exam. Some of the mock questions were ok which is what prevented me from crying

The topics not covered include stuff like JSF, Webservices etc. Search this forum or have a look at the sun website to understand what is missing in the book.
