I m refering Kathey's headFirst EJB. It's a VERY GOOD BOOK. But when I tried to do the questions on first Chapter I felt that it is not enough to pass the exam. What else should i refer. Do we have to read the EJB spec. ?
I'm Confused

Why not enough? I do believe that the book is enough to pass the exam... You can even get very high score, if you can understand the concepts from the book well...

I only read that book and scored 84% in the real exam... I read no other resources or books or nothing... Do keep your faith on that boook...

Hay Thax for the advice

And i knoow that book is very good also.

But the problem i'm having is to whether we have to refer other materials like EJB 2.0 spec. .

I am beginning to think that the book is not enough either. It goes over some very many important concepts but then refers you to the specs for the details. It says in the book itself that you have to keep the specs with you and refer to them. They mention the specs right there. However for the details and the exam questions I don't think knowing just the book is enough. KoKo ofcourse says nono which I think is rather kookoo.

I found Head First EJB great for learning EJB from scratch.
However, it isn't focused on the exam objectives enough in my opinion.
I've suplemented the book with the exam-centered material at http://java.boot.by and now have a better understanding of what's REQUIRED for the exam.
