I have to prior experience of EJB. I want to start preparation of SCBCD 5. I searched forums and I found Mastering EJB 3.0 and EJB In Action are good books for preparation. I am not sure whether all the topics of these books are required for the exam or not.
It would be great if someone can specify topics or chapter required from these books for exam.
I think you can see all necessary topics (or objectives) here and also it will be useful to take a look at Mikalai Zaikin's SCBCD5 Study Guide (it contains information already grouped by exam objectives).
