I have just passed SCBCD 5 with 98% today. I feel a little disappointed because I have study so hard with a hope to get 80%. I have to study at level 10 and exam is at level 7->8.

The books I studied were
+ Spec EJB3 (JPA and core). This is very very excite book, although it is difficult to study. I have to read about 5 times. From the third time I feel rather understand. I read about 350 pages from these 2 book (200 from core and 150 from JPA)
+ Pro EJB3 JPA this is the very good, precise book, excellent JPA book.
+ EJB3 In Action (some places different from JPA spec (allow define public instance state in entity))
+ MasteringEJB4.pdf (some examples of source code still use pre final spec (@Entity(access = AccessType.FIELD))). This is very good and useful book.
+ OReilly Enterprise JavaBeans 3.0 5th Edition. This is very good book for general knowledge but not good for very detail knowledge like spec
+ JavaEETutorial from Sun. This tutorial is very detail especially security examples
+ Apress Beginning EJB3 Application Development. This book is excellent for guiding deploy application.
+ Tutorial made by Mikalai Zaikin (, summary from spec.
Mock test:
+ Enthuware
+ Whizlabs
+ TopCerts (455 Questions). Very excellent but not explain. Many question like real exam. Answers are very exactly
+ Sample exam of Sun (30Q)

Hey Eric, good job mate...
Have to admit, you read a lot...
I have not gone through those many books in my whole career of 4 years

If you think you can, you can. If you think you can't, you are right.
