Hi,

Yes, this book is straight to the point, good one. Some check points, short guide like "when to use what" , last chapter for Part II & Exam yet to complete.

Thanks,
Saravanan.

Not really.

The book has a some TBCs (to be completed) in it especially in the Business Tier section.
There is no specific chapter or topic for the Section 6 [Applicability of Java EE Technology] objective.
The chapters on Web and Business Tier are a bit light and I would be surprised if the exam would only test at this shallow level.
The chapter on patterns is not yet complete with a lot of blank spaces where the core JEE patterns should be.

Hope that helps.
