For each different Java EE certification,
you need different books
a) for learning
b) for preparation of the test.

As you know, you must be OCPJP to pass any Java EE certifcation.

I am just trained do do OCEJWCD 6 certification,

1)
we use for test preparation ( Java EE 6 )
Charles Lyons "OCEJWCD Study Companion: Certified Expert Java EE 6 Web Component Developer (Oracle Exam 1Z0-899)", 2012.
http://www.amazon.de/exec/obidos/ASIN/0955160340/hemmerling-21

, the alternative is

Esteban Herrera "Java Practice Questions: Oracle Certified Expert, Java EE 6 Web Component Developer",
http://www.amazon.de/exec/obidos/ASIN/1499260253/hemmerling-21

All other known preparation books don´t cover Java EE6, but EE5 or EE4

2)
we got 2 mockup exams resources by the training institute,

"1z0-899 - Java EE 6 Web Component Developer Certified Expert Exam"
JWeb+ V6 for Oracle Certified Expert - Web Component (JSP/Servlet) Developer 6. 9 Mock Exams - 650+ Questions - NO FLUFF*"

I can´t post the URLs or company names,
if I do I get the error message "Sorry, your post contained a reference to a company or website that publishes real test questions - a practice we do not approve of here at JavaRanch. We have banned all discussion of the websites which do this, because even the knowledge of the names of such websites seems to encourage others to use the website to cheat. If you were attempting to discuss this website for any other reason, we apologize for the inconvenience.
The problem was with the word: "xxxxxxxx"".

I was suprised about the importance of such mock exams for beeing prepared for the test.... I am not used that from IT education at college.

3)
we use for learning ( a Java EE 5 book )

Bryan Basham, Kathy Sierra, Bert Bates "Head First Servlets and JSP: Passing the Sun Certified Web Component Developer Exam",
http://www.amazon.de/exec/obidos/ASIN/0596516681/hemmerling-21

it is BOTH a exam training book, but mostly a learning resource.

, we get infos by the lecturer for the extras of Java EE 6 ( e.g. Annotations ).

-

Be warned not to take test preparation books for Java EE5 for Java EE6 certification. For learning, the "Heads First" Java EE5 book is ok. But not for exam preparation

See my resources web page about Java certification,
for OCEJWCD the section
Java EE 6 Web Component Developer Certification

If it was also a violation to name such mock exams, dear moderators, then edit my posting please.
And no further discussion about these "websites".

The two preparation books also contain mock-exam questions...

The mock exams that your training provider is using JWeb+ V6 is developed by us enthuware.com . We do not sell real exam questions and nor do we advertise as so.

thank you,
Paul.

Paul,
thanks for feedback,
and pointing that EnthuWare's mock exams are no "violation of copyright and code-of-honor" of Oracle but your own company's intellectual property :-),
and that we are allowed to point to your commercially available exams in this forum, legally :-)

Sincerely
Rolf
