I started preparing for SCEA Part-1, and i found so many reference books for Part 1. I did a search in the forum and had a talk with someother persons who are also preparing for SCEA. I collected the following information regarding the books to be referred for preparing SCEA Part-1.
Unlike SCJP, SCWCD and SCBCD (for which we have specified books available like Kathy and Bert's books for both SCJP and SCWCD and EJB3 in Action for SCBCD), we have to refer lot many books for the Architect Certification.
Any updates / inputs / suggestions / deletions (like how many chapters do we need to refer in a specific Book, or any additional books needed or we dont need this book for this objective etc. etc..) regarding the following Objective-wise book list is greatly accepted.
