I am preparing for SCEA exam and your book is a very good start. Thanks.

I feel your book is very thin for SCEA exam. I know you want us to read lot many books because becoming architect is not so easy job :-), but I think some more elaboration is required on each topic. Any particular reason to keep this book so thin?

Also, each chapter asks for JSR study for each JEE component as a prerequisite. I think going through all JSR is very difficult and I guess it wll take a year to prepare for SCEA exam. Is it sufficient to read only Sun JEE tutorial instead ?

Thanks,

The book is thin by design. If we tried to cover every detail on every topic, we'd still be writing. The intent of the book is a study guide to help you focus your preparation and cover the topics we think are the most important.
