Hai,
Though I've worked with Web components and EJB's, I haven't really taken up any exams on that. I would like to take up SCBCD.
Just got a few doubts.

1. I've passed SCJP 1.4. But wanted to take up another certification. Is it advisable to take up SCBCD before taking up SCWCD? Is it going to make any difference?

2. Does SCBCD cover EJB 3.0? If yes, Is there any book I can read for EJB 3.0? Something like HF- EJB.

The WCD and BCD exams are not related and can be taken in any order though it would be somewhat logical to take the WCD first (as JSP/Servlets came first before EJB's).

The version covered by the exam and the Head First book is 2.0. The EJB 3.0 draft version has been released recently and I don't think there are any books for it yet.

As already pointed out, the SCBCD exam covers the EJB 2.0 specification. However, if you are interested in EJB 3.0, you can have a look at:
- Beginning Java EE 5: From Novice to Professional.
- Pro EJB 3.0 Persistence
- Sams Teach Yourself EJB 3.0 in 24 Hours.
