Hi I have been trying to learning j2ee for few weeks now. I think the hardest part for me is to pick the right material/books and is understandable for me. I have decent understanding of core java. I feel as if core java books are more readable than j2ee books. I have been looking around for a while and found a lot of j2ee books are very difficult to read for beginners like me.

Right now I am tackling head first servlets & jsp and marty hall's coreservlets since I think they are the only readable j2ee books to me for now. And I think the jsp and servlets are the first major topic for j2ee.

My question is, what topic should I get into after jsp and servlets? Is there any books that are beginner friendly as head first servlets?

I have already skim few chapters from Beginning Java EE 5 - From Novice to Professional, The Java EE 5 Tutorial and Java Enterprise in a Nutshell. They are not as easy to read, even though they may be considered real good books to read for beginners.

What would be the easiest way to tackle this?

The Java EE 5 Tutorial and Java Enterprise in a Nutshell are not good books for beginners. They move fast and assume certain knowledge. And they aren't that readable.

EJB 3 in Action is good for learning about EJBs from scratch. It's not quite as entertaining as the Head First series, but it is quite readable.
