I have recently started preparing for scbcd 5.0.

Books i am planning to read are: EJB3 in action,Pro EJB,Mikalai Zaikin study book.

But i have seen most of people saying that reading the specifications is
a must for passing the exam.

I have seen the document for specifications. Its too long and is more relevant to EJB provider.

What things i should read from this?

The specification is quite important if you want to score well. Besides scoring well, it is also important if you want to learn EJBs well. They are not just for providers but for developers as well. Having said that, it is not necessary to read the specs from cover to cover. You can do a selective reading. For example, chapters on JPA, JPQL, Exception handling are very important.

BTW, do not get put off by size of the specs. They are quite easy to understand once you start reading them.

My track is same as you. But it is must to read 'in action' first to make sen of things. the other stuff that can follow is oreilly book/jpa book and the spec.
