I passed OCEEJBD 6 last week and I got the certification with 81%.
I prepare this with :
1°) Enterprise JavaBeans 3.1 by Andrew Lee Rubinger, Bill Burke (read 3 times)
2°) EJB Cookbook 3.1 (read 2 times)
3°) EJB 3.1 Specification (read 1 times and refered to this pdf when i had a doubt)
4°) JTA Specification
5°) JTS Specification
6°) EJB 3 - Des concepts à l'écriture du code. Guide du développeur (french book)
7°) Enthuware mocks exam
8°) Frits Walraven OCPEJBD 6 EJB 3.1 notes
I think EJB cookbook is the most important to see examples. But the must are the specification and Frits notes. Enthuware is quite good too.
With enthuware, my exam was between 80% to 92%. Some questions on the exam was a little bit strange compare to other exam or Enthuware's mocks .

I have a question: do we need to study JTS and JTA specifications?
Or, do we just need to briefly know what they are for the exam?
For me, it was important to know the specification about JTA and JTS because i didn't know how it works at all ! And the JTA's specification help me to understand how to understand Bean managed transaction demarcation.
This is a difficult exam, but a nice one to have on your belt. It is not specifications driven (like WCD, EJB, JPA), nor programmatic driven (like JP). Understanding the concepts is crucial.
I heard that it's the most difficult exam and it's focused on SOA pattern. I bought the book Java web service up and running, I have already started the book.
I think this time, I will participate a lot in this forum in order to understand correctly the subject. I have bought also the enthuware mocks exam of OCEEJWS. The part of book's reference, notes, or specification is empty. I don't know if it's normal or not.
I'll try to pass this certification in six months maximum.
I have recently given OCEEJBD certification and cleared with a percentage of 73 % within a very minimal preparation of about 2 months.
I primarily studied the EJB 3.1 specification and Ivan's notes once and did significant hands-on inspite of a short duration.
Most of the questions in the examination are based on the specification but need analysis and considerable hands-on.
Hope this helps the aspirants.
