Hi, there are 2 books on the market for this exam:

1. "Head First EJB" from O'Reilly, written by K&B
2. "SCBCD Exam Study Kit" from Manning, written by Paul Sanghera

Most of people here use 1st one, however, it's written in "special" head-first manner , some people prefer "traditional" style of studying - they use 2nd book.

regards,
MZ

But Mikalai, Do we have to follow both the books. Will it be enough to go with only the Head First Book.

In fact Mikalai is giving you a choice based on personal preferences.

HFEJB is enough especially if you follow all its references to the relevant sections of the EJB 2.0 specification. Become familiar with the terms and langauge of the specification because that is the langauge the real exam will use (some mock exams do not use "the language" very well(example: Explain???)).

Personally, I don't find reading through a book a second time all that productive - I'm probably skipping through most of it because of the "been there - done that" factor. So sometimes using one book for intensive study then using a second book for review and "a second opinion" can come in handy.
