This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Hi, I would like to recommend some material that aren't usually suggested. I found 'design patterns for dummies', an excellent book. I haven't read head first book, but its size is daunting. I don't know if 'UML distilled' counts for OO principles. I have the same problem with OO. Actually with 'design' rather than understanding of other people's design. Incidentally, 'Enterprise Java with UML' was also an unexpected book for me. Very unique. and 'JSF for non-believers' series, from IBM are very good, if you don't want to know it all, about JSF. Regards Farbod

Can you give me idea what kind questions can be asked for this, so i can prepare according to that.
I passed SCEA5 with 62% yesterday. I agree with Steven C, I felt exam was tough. I did not felt like this when I took SCJP(82%) or SCWCD(91%). I read SCEA (1.4) book by Mark Cade and Simon Roberts and "The Java EE5 Tutorial" by Sun.
