Depends on your working experience with EJB3 and JPA, and also how many hours a day you can spend on it. If you can spend 8 hours a day on studying, then yes you can easily do it within 15 days.

I did the exam today, got 88%.

This is how I prepared for it:

First I read the O'Reilly EJB 3 book during a month after work (maximum 2 hours a day).
Then I did the first mock test of Enthuware's test suite and I got 57%. (failed)
The last 3 days before the exam I studied hard from 8 to 5 using Enthuware test suite and Mikalai Zaikin's guide. This boosted my test scores to > 70%. On the final test I got 81% and as I said on the actual exam 88%. Enthuware is a real help! It's worth the money!!!

List of resources I used:

- O'Reilly Enterprise Javabeans 3.0 book (http://oreilly.com/catalog/9780596009786)
- Enthuware test suite (http://www.enthuware.com/index.php/mockexams/sunjavacertifications/ejb-developer-questions/scbcd-ocpbcd-5-old-exam)
(a great help, contains a lot of exam-like question. This is a must)
- EJB3 spec (http://java.sun.com/products/ejb/docs.html)
- Mikalai Zaikin's guide (http://java.boot.by/scbcd5-guide/) which is a great summary of the specs
- Free sample test: http://java.sun.com/developer/Quizzes/ejb/ejb3.0_simplified_api.html

Good luck!
