Hi,
I am going through the book 'Mastering EJB 3.0' 4th edition.It seems an interesting book to me.Is this book enough for SCBCD 5.0 apart from EB3.0 specs from SUN or any additional reading is required such as Orielly's Enterprose Java Beans 3.0.
Kindly suggest.
Thanks & Regards,
Anand

Hi Anand,

I took about 2-3 months to do this from scratch (ie no experience of EJBs) using

  • Enterprise Java Beans 3.0 (OReilly - Burke, Monson-Haefel)
  • Beginning EJB 3 Application Development (Apress - Kodali, Wetherbee)
  • EJB 3.0 Specs
  • EPractice exams from Sun (GB-WGS-PREX-J091C)



  • I found the practice exams the most helpful, though a bit expensive. They were definitely worth it as they give you an idea of the kind of questions and also where you have gaps.

    I must admit I found it hard. I failed the two test exams with 50% and 49%, but I went throug each question and checked against the spec and made notes. The test exams give you references in the various EJB specs where you can find more information - they are a little bit out of date though as the spec has changed since they wrote these exams - so you have to hunt around sometimes.

    When I took the exam, I made sure I marked every question I had doubts about, and had an hour to go at the end where I reviewed all 30 o the ones I had doubts about. When I went through these again reading the questions VERY carefully.

    Anyway, all the best with your studies,

    Dave
