Better to start with modern day EJB 3. For EJB 3, I like EJB 3 in Action

Dear Soliman,

Here's my suggestion. Infact, I follow this whenever I try to learn any thing new ( related to IT).

1. Google out and download Powerpoint presentations which start with Intro to EJB, EJB Basics, EJB etc. Download 4 - 5 of those PPTs of medium number ( 10-15 ) slides and go through them. In a short while , you will understand the outline of the Technology.

2. Use the google again to read reviews and identify which Book suits you best. ( for ex: If you are a absolute beginner a Advanced EJB would not be good). You can use the Book Reviews section in Java ranch for this.

3. Finally Order an online copy or a Hard copy and read up.

EJB is a Wonderful Technology, you will love it.

i would suggest to start of with EJB .30. A good book for those who are new can be http://www.amazon.com/EJB-Developer-Guide-developers-architects/dp/1847195601/ref=sr_1_8?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1287332818&sr=1-8

It explains the concepts well alongwith detailed examples.
