Just break the problem up into lots of small ones. So, start learning the basics and, if you have a problem which you cannot solve, just post it here!

Hi sanneel paul ,

Be cool.......
Even I am in the same situation.
Did SCWCD..
With the same tempo..started reading SCBCD ..read the concepts twice till you understand.
Then it will take you on...
Keep practising if you have time..
Infact...I feel SCBCD is eASIER AND INTERESTING THAN scwcd.

saneel,

you can start with a different book, like ejb in 21 days, ejb kick start(more advanced but still beginners).....

you dont have to read teh whole book on those...just get a feel what an ejb is, even on a high level, but ideally see some codes...

if u feel confident what an ejb is,

then proceed to the bible, hf ejb

im on same road as you are, we can do it

Hi

A good book to get started is Head First EJB, although it is often wise to gain some experience before jumping into the exam. I thought about taking the exam a while back when I had no EJB experience but then I considered the fact that I would have the certification but still no experience, and this would not make me more employable.

Good luck anyone. The HEAD FIRST book is a really good read for those with little or no exposure to EJB but with a reasonable understanding of Java.

Cheers

Mark

I would highly recomend some experience [ especially since you say that you are lost, because the concpet is very simple, a lot less craming than the SCWCD exam, a couple of reads is good enough]
with the web world before jumping into this exam. Exam looks good on resume and every interviewer knows that most newbees take refuge in certifications, so when they say certification is a plus, they mean are you an authority on the subject not did yoy cram the API. Because EJB in the real world is a totally differentr ball game and only experience general in the java world came put it all together.

Best Wishes
