Hi, I was taking a brief pause from my certification path when I realised that a new certification had been released .... I have been working in an environment where EJB has been the core back-end technology of choice and in many instances have had some experience of designing and implementing EJB's and deploying J2EE applications on WSAD 4 and 5. Most of the work I have done has been on the front-end, using Struts primarily, and have decided to move more to the back end. My question is how much work is involved in terms of preparation. I am currently reading the EJB book by Richard Monson-Haefel and just wondered what other resources members of the ranch found useful. By the way keep up the good work, I have used to ranch to prepare for 3 of my java certifications and you guys haven't failed me yet so I guess you must be doing something right . Thanks

Hi Chiji, A few suggestions: - Do remember to read the EJB specification after you read some wonderful books. - Do remember to understand the reason of rules. This is tough, requires you to think over. Understanding is the best of memorizing. - Do remember to take some mock exams. Good luck!
