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 (http://java.boot.by/scbcd5-guide/), 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)
