I downloaded 3 pdf files for Sun specifications, which are :

1. ejb-3_0-fr-spec-ejbcore.pdf
2. ejb-3_0-fr-spec-persistence.pdf
3. ejb-3_0-fr-spec-simplified.pdf

Do we need to read all as First one having 562 pages, second one 256, & the third one is 59. It's time consuming. please help to avoid unnecessary wastage of time if no need to read particular thing for the SCBCD exam. I know EJB3 well but not getting complete confidence for the exam. so planning to read specifications. please help.

I know what you mean about the number of pages in the specs. Here is what I have been doing
1) I used EJB3 in action for the initial read until I was comfortable with the subject.
2) Attempted objective wise tests from Enthuware
3) While evaluating the tests, I got a feel of what areas I am weak in.
4) I read additional material like specs and internet resources (Javaranch search can a very good friend) for these areas. I have been doing some examples in these areas, I can't say enough about doing examples. Reading only goes so far for me. A perfect example is Transaction and exception handling. I found this to be a very tricky subject once you get into the details, so reading the specs and doing the examples did help me some, but it is still fuzzy.

Hope this helps.
