i'm preparing for SCJA and i would like to ask you for some advice.
I have the McGraw-Hill's book. But im not sure about the extend to which the book covers certain topics.
Specifically there are only 2 (two) pages on EJB. Is this enough for the exam ?
I did not read the book, but Amazon.com reviews are pretty interesting. 8-)
BTW, JavaRancher and bartender Cameron Wallace McKenzie wrote a cool SCJA study guide. Lots of people passed SCJA using his guide.
The McGraw-Hill from what i remember is very accurate on what is on the test.
I would strongly suggest a mock-exam of some type (whizlabs was great) and to do some additional research on vague topics to get a more solid understanding.
Seriously though, Robert is an excellent author, and McGraw Hill puts out excellent books. Of course, I won't say anything else about it for fear of detracting from my own book sales.
About EJB. Well, you need to understand the concepts. When should you use them, when should you not use them, and what are the benefits and drawbacks to using them. You don't need to know the syntax or be able to code and deploy one, although you should know how they are packaged and the types of environments in which they work. Is two pages enough? Tell us when you pass the exam!
