Hi Ananth,

This really depends on the individual and the time that he or she could devote for this. For me it took about 5 - 6 month preparation for the part 1. I have prepared my own short notes based on each and every exam topic. Also I visited any recommended blogs , used any recommended short notes in this forum. For mock exams I did not use any of the free ones but oracle provided one only. Every day I at least studied 1-2 hours while travelling to my office back and forth. That is my experience and for you it could be different. And also I have 5+ years experience in J2EE related technologies. So it would be better if you access yourself with the time that your are going to spend on it , the number of years experience you have etc..

Books used ,

1. Mark Cade and Humphrey Sheil - Sun Certified Enterprise Architect
for Java™ EE Study Guide , 2nd Edition
2. JEE 5 Tutorial
3. Core JEE patterns -Deepak Alur , John Crupi , Dan Marlks
4. Elements of Reusable components - Creative Commons web site and GOF book
5. EJB 3 In action (DEBU PANDA , REZA RAHMAN, DEREK LANE) , Pro EJB 3 Java Persistence API (Mike Keith , Merrick Schincariol)
6. Various other notes on JRMP , IIOP , RMI , CORBA , HTTP , HTTPS etc
7. Various other notes on Load balancing , Fail over etc
8. Wikipedia was also among those that I used heavily

You may not need all above, but reading those would make you very confident about the exam

I assume this is your first time that you are attempting this exam , then you must select "310-052(Oracle Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE5)" , the other one is for people who already completed an old version of exam and willing to upgrade to the new version

Yes , you can register for the part one using Prometric (http://www.prometric.com/default.htm) web site

Thanks!
