I know Java. But not EJBs. Is there any standard resources like books/internet book links that are available, that caters to preparing for this exam.

Hi Surya,
Head First EJB is a must have, I would say!!
Also thee links on SCBCD Links will be very useful.

Hi

Roman's "Mastering Enterprise JavaBeans" is probably an alternative. It's not directly aimed at the exam, but more conventional than HFE.

Greets,

Buy Kathy and Bert's Head First EJB for no doubt.

I'm joining the chorus of recommendations for Headfirst EJB. I've already
finished HeadFirst Java, and I find the presentation style (lots of pictures, puzzles, & questions) excellent for the "between meeting and over
lunch hour" study schedule I have to adopt. It's interesting enough that
I'm picking it up to see what they'll say/do next. Not finished, yet but I've done 4 chapters in 2 days.

Download the EJB 2.0 specification - not 2.1 - and print it and organise it properly in a file with markers etc. This is fundemental as it is this that is the core material. HeadFirst Book is then great.

Thanks for the comments guys

I agree with Peter, get the spec!!

Also, I like both Ed Roman's book and Richard Monson-Haefel's books. They will not completely prepare you for the details of the exam, but they are both excellent books on EJB.

And don't hesitate to consider this forum as another excellent (and perhaps the BEST) source of preparation! There are so many smart people right in the midst of preparing who are either facing the same questions as you, or have already been down that road and are willing to help.

good luck,
Kathy

Hi,

Consider the following before appearing for the exam.

1.Head Firt EJB (It is very good and no doubt in it).

2.Read the spec.

3.Involve yourself in Javaranch.

I think all would have said this and one more to add to it...is

Try to apply it in reality and try to test it out.Lot of theory wont

help it out.

The end result is u need to *CODE* effectively and efficiently.

So practise a lot......


All the best
