Hi ranchers,

I am planning to take the SCBCD 5 exam in a couple of month's time.

I have referred to the Kathy Sierra books for the SCJP and SCWCD earlier. But from the links section I found out that the Head First series book only caters to the SCBCD 1.3 version and not version 5. Any idea if any new version of the book is coming up recently.

Also, there are some text books recommended in the links section but a book specifically written for the exams is much more useful as an add on to a text book. Does anyone know of any such book for SCBCD 5.

And amongst the text books which will be the best. Any suggestons.

I have some experience with EJB 2.0 but am a novice in EJB 3.0. So considering that background what should be my plan of action.
Ideas, suggestions will be much appreciated. I have extensively read the javaranch forums for my earlier certifications and once again will look forward to rancher's recommendations, especially those who have passed the exam, before plunging into the SCBCD 5 preparations.

Thanking you in advance,
Deep.

Sorry, no idea. I wouldn't wait for one

There isn't. The closest you'll get is Mikalai Zaikin's SCBCD 5.0 Guide (also in the links), but I would not recommend it at the beginning. It's mostly a copy/paste from the specification, not a friendly guide. I would recommend EJB3 In Action first.

once again will look forward to rancher's recommendations, especially those who have passed the exam, before plunging into the SCBCD 5 preparations.


You can also check the SCBCD Wall of Fame and see other ranchers' recommendations.

Hi,

If you are a beginner you can start with EJB 3 in Action.It is a good book and read carefully from Chapter 1 to Chapter 11.

Then you can refer Mikalai Zaikin's Short notes.

I would not recommend Mikalai Zaikin's SCBCD 5.0 Guide at the beginning either. It is totally talking about the EJB3.0 specification and very hard to read without any EJB practical experience.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
