I think you should take 158 first.
Because 158 = 483 + WebSphere issues, You only need to read additional WebSphere books to prepare this exam.
How to prepare it:
1) sg246144-EJB development with Visual Age for JAVA - this book is valuable in WSAD section
2) sg246176-WebSphere hand book 15,16,18,19,21 - this book is valuable in WAS section
3) review books that you prepared for 483
I think you should spend 3~4 weeks to clear 158.
Good Luck!
I got ORACLE8i OCP DBA 2 years ago.
The first exam is very easy if you used PL/SQL for years.
how to prepare :
1)PL/SQL - user guide and reference
2)SQL*PLUS - user guide and reference

To Ravi:
I am currently using Weblogic in my projects. I have taken SCJP and 486(OOAD) AND 483(Enterprise Connectibity) last year , and I feel this exam 158 is more difficult than 483.
I spent one month to prepare this exam (3 weekends and at night) :
1) ejb-2_0-spec - this book is valuable in EJBs and transation section, and is the base of other section; I spend more than half time to read this book
2) servlet-2_3-spec - this book is valuable in web section
3) jsp-1_2-spec - this book is valuable in web section
4) sg246144-EJB development with Visual Age for JAVA - this book is valuable in WSAD section
5) sg246176-WebSphere hand book 15,16,18,19,21 - this book is valuable in WAS section
6) I didn't try any test Exam.

Good luck !
