Hello:

Today I saw that the EJB spec is broken into three parts, persistence, ejbcore and simplified. I don't want to waste a tree and print out all of these. Are all three necessary to study to pass the exam? Thanks.

Hi,

Study all of them, if you don't wanna have a bad surprise. They're a must

Its depressing to realise that I need to go through another 800 (approx.) pages of EJB3 specification even after 700 pages of EJB3 in action. Takes time to convince my mind

As I said, there are some important details for the exam that you won't find in EJB3 in Action (Don't forget that EJB3 in Action is not intended for the SCBCD exam preparation). You'll see for instance when you buy the enthuware kit, there are several explanations that refer to the spec. so don't neglect the spec although EJB3 is an excellent book when you need to understand EJB technology.

Thanks Mamadou! Just wondering whether I can replace specs with MJ's notes since MJ's notes taken from spec. I lost all my motivation after realising that I need to study specs as well. Please advice.

Do you guys think that the EJB head First book would be enough for studying for the SCBCD exam?

I think for EJB2.0 this book should be sufficient, however for EJB3 there is no specific book.

Yes, there are some important pieces of information in the Specs that might be useful for the exam. My idea for the exam is to first go through the EJB 3 book from O'Reilly and then perhaps take a couple of mock exams from Enthuware and analze on those parts that I went wrong, look for more detailed understanding on those parts from the specs. Hope this would do the trick for me!

This is what I did : Studied with EJB3 In Action and Pro EJB3 JPA, used Enthuware mocks and referred to the specs when needed. (but I've read the specs when I passed SCBCD1.3, so that might be an advantage)
