Hi PRAVEEN
I felt the objective for Test 257 was bit redundant for me. So I dropped off the plan.
Coming to your exam, I m not sure about 255 objectives, but it looks quite similar. You can start with IBM Red books and practice with RAD.
If you have fairly good exp/knowledge on J2EE, I guess this exam should be pretty straight forward for you.
But I would recommend for you to consider Test 257, it focuses more on EJB's and other relatively advanced topic. You can also find excellent notes by Mikalai Zaikin here


Good luck and best wishes
Jerry

"Stephen" we at Javaranch are a friendly group and there aren't much rules here. But two things we really care of are "Be nice" and having a valid display name. Please note that following the naming policy is not optional.Failing to do so before your next post will lead to deletion of your account.
So please take a moment of your time to adjust your display name so that it includes a valid last name also.
