I'm preparing for the exam part 1 of SCEA, and this week I'm studying the EJB 3. I have book from Apress which find it very good. My Questioon is, what we have to know and understand for the exam for EJB and JPA (java persistence API). Do we have to master all details of Entities and their RelationShips (@oneToOne, @OneToMany, @ManyToMany..) and all the annotaion that Entities have in EJB 3 and the Mapping Entity Inheritance Hierarchies, howEjb 3 works with web services or be as Web Services etc ... For those that did pass the exam and remember the part 1, any advice what we have to understand for the Exam ?

Congratulation for your pass for the Part 1 !! and wish you the best for the next exams
Thank you for sharing with us your experience even it's related with the old version of SCEA, but still some topics in the old version are included in the new SCEA 5, so it's useful to read your post even for those will prepare for the new SCEA.
Thank you very mush Paul for your prompt response For the source that I�m using to study the web services, I do have a book that was recommended by SUN which is : Developing Java Web Services � Architecting and Developing Secure Web Services Using Java Developing Java Web Services

Thanks Cameron for your prompt response and Yes I�ll place an advance order Actually not only Books that I need to prepare, like even if there is some document where we can start to work for this new SCEA 5. AS I never use EJB in my work, I really need a good start for what is included in the Exam SCEA 5 part I, is my ED Roman Book ok, or I have to read from other documents online until we get your Book ready (or other books )
What I need is best recommendation to start my study now, or do I have to wait some moths to see how the Beta goes ?
Thank you so much again for your response, looking forward to your reply !
I started last year to prepare for SCEA Edition 1, and didn't had time to pass the exam, I did study on the books below : Mastering Enterprise JavaBeans 3 edition by ED ROman UML Distilled by Martin Fowler Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Technology by Mark Cade and Simon Roberts And many document on the web.
Now as the Objectives for the new SCEA Edition 5 has changed , my question now, which books are available now on the market to prepare for the new SCEA 5 ? or any good documentation existing online ( spec, tutorial, etc ..) Can I still prepare for the new SCEA with my book that I listed above ?
Do someone know if SUN did recommand some books for the new SCEA Edition 5 ? Any suggestion and recommendation for how to prepare for this new SCEA should be really appreciated.
Thank you so much in advance for your response and suggestion,
you know I'm holding now Head First EJB book, one of my colleague had to prepare for the SCBCD certification and had use this book, he said he just use this book to complete the SCBCD ... I borrow it from him
I'll spent all my weekend reading it !! Thank you and thank you so much Frank for all your reply and My best wishes for you next coming exam too
What I meant about old Edition is if the same author had written before a book for EJB 1.x as the exam is focused on EJB 1.1 as you said the exam is a bit behind the bleeding edge . Because EJB 3.0 is not yet in the actual Exam.. Actually I had miss the Exam part 1 a Week ago and now want to retake it, also as I have never use or work with EJB (lucky you that you have work experience using EJB, this is more important than just reading a book ) .. so My first experience with EJB started when I start to prepare for the SCEA exam 1, I bought Mastering EJB by ED-Roman, indeed it�s a good book too, but for some one like me that had never know anything about EJB (the book is more theorical ) and it was hard to swallow all that theory. So during this week I did some research and someone strongly recommend the Enterprise JavaBeans 3.0 by Bill Burke and Richard Monson-Haefel book, and I�m wondering if there is Enterprise JavaBeans 1.x by Bill Burke and Richard Monson-Haefel ?
Or I�ll get a copy of HF EJB, this book is good too ... I have to retake the exam, and I have to make sure this time I really master the EJB .. What do you think Frank ?
Thanks again for your response and advise Mys Best Regards,
