Hi All,
I have just cleared SCWCD Exam with 98% and would like to go for SCBCD Exam in another 2 months. I want to secure 90+ even in SCBCD Exam also.
I was never exposed to EJBs until now. Can you pls inform me of the necessary books / material to secure 90+ even in SCBCD. I heard that HF EJB is good for teaching fundamentals and passing SCBCD Exam. But Is it alone enough to get a very good score. If not, can you pls provide the other info ?
Thanks,
Uday Kiran

I imagine you are new to EJBs. So I would recommend the foll.
1. Kathy's book - HF EJB
2. EJB2.0 Specs
3. Practice EJB's tutorial with the SUN's reference implementation
4. Read the posts in this forum.
5. Mock exam simulators like Soft-SCBCD or EJBPlus
6. You can also read Ed Roman's book for more EJB subject, if you like.
The entire effort might take somewhere between 2-4 months and I can assure you a min. of 95%. Good Luck!
I do not know why you are so keen on score. A pass is a pass, (atleast for me )

I would add :
- Enterprise JavaBeans 3-rd ed from O'Reilly by Richard Monson-Haefel.
I highly recommend this book.

I should also add that if you're going to do EJB in the *real world* I STRONGLY recommend Richard Monson-Haefel's EJB book that Mikalai recommended. It's excellent and practical.
cheers,
Kathy

Head First EJB is enough for 90+ marks.

i doubt it. You need to read the EJB spec as well (even the book suggested it).

I got 88% (62/70) without reading single line of spec. You have to read Head First EJB for 2-3 times.

I also think HF EJB is enough, as the knowledge covered in HF EJB not only sufficient for SCBCD, it also helps me to get IBM ICED 5.0. HF EJB covers lots of EJB details that being examined in IBM 287 and 484!
Kathy and Bert really wrote an excellent book for us to learn EJB.
Sometimes, I feel the specification is quite difficult to read, although many people keep saying that the spec. are easy to read.
I did only read SCWCD Exam Study Kit, JSP Pro for SCWCD beta, without read a line from the spec. I am sure that reading the spec did help for some people, but I must not one of them.
