I got the Voucher on 4th Evening and took the exam today at 1.45pm EST with 1 day of preparation. The test is of 4hours and 183 questions. Test Centres specify the time as 4Hrs 15Minutes including the 15 minutes for the survey questions. Time shouldn't be a problem as I finished it in 3 Hours. If you read EJB2.0 spec sections that cover the objectives, the Exam should be a easy one to pass. Also O'reily EJB book by Monson-Haefel, 3rd ed. covers most of the objectives except the EJB roles & responsibilities, which is covered well in Mastering EJB book by Roman. There were lot of drop and drop questions especialy on EJB-QL and EJB Roles.
I went through the chapters suggested by Kathy and and there were no surprises. Here is the link to Kathy's post for reference:

Dear Vijayakumar, nice to hear of you. Did you read all those 3 - spec, O'Reilly and Ed Roman?

Hi Ashik,
I read the complete spec sections related to the Objectives. After that I went through the O'Reilly book on sections like EJB QL, Transactions, Security. This is an excellent book. This book doesn't cover EJB Roles. The specs cover EJB Roles but it is sparsed through the spec and is not given in a single chapter. I read EdRoman only for EJB roles.
My Wishes for your Exam today.
