I want to thank everyone , especially, Frits who volunteer to answer our questions on this forum.
I want to thank Ivan Krizsan for his 400 pages of notes at http://www.ivankrizsan.se/my-books/
I would also like to thank MZ, Jeanne, Paul and etc who answered my questions about the mock exams.
I passed this exam with 90%.

My study experience in my past 13 months , about 2-4 hours a day:
1. I first read EJB 3.2 in Action for the general concepts.
2. I read Frits notes and JSR -318 at least twice
3. At the same time, I read Head First EJB 2.0 and only focus on the session bean, security and transaction parts. This book is great. I wish it will have another 3.0 edition.
4. I wrote code examples based on Ivan's notes.
5. It is optional to read Oreilly's EJB 3.0 or Reese' EJB cookbook.
6. I highly recommend Enthuware and EPractice Labs.
7. I really enjoy doing Q&A on this forum and Enthuware's forum.

My next exam will be web component.

My next one will be web component. If I pass web component exam, I will take JPA. After JPA, that will be JSF.
If there are more, I will consider them.

By the way, for the web component, I see there is a study guide that I can order from Amazon. Any other programming books recommended?
Ivan's notes provide us working code examples for web service and EJB. But I don't see Ivan has any code example notes for web component.

The recommended books are OCEJWCD Study Companion and Head First Servlets & JSP (2nd edition). The HFSJ book doesn't contain the new Servlet 3.0 aspects but that book is still useful!

Ivan's notes provide us working code examples for web service and EJB. But I don't see Ivan has any code example notes for web component.


Unfortunately he didn't create notes for the WCD exam, but the two books provide you with enough practice questions.

Don't miss out the free mock exam from Piotr: Servlet 3.0 mock exam and check the other resources here: ScwcdLinks
