Regarding SCBCD Certification

Hi All,

I cleared SCBCD a few months back. I don't have basic knowledge about EJBs. Is it possible to take SCBCD Certification within two months? Does SUN still have SCBCD 1.3 exam? I am comfortable with Head First series. I guess that Head First book for EJB 2 is avaiable in India but teh one for EJB 3 is not. Is that correct? So I am planning to take SCBCD 1.3 instead of SCBCD 5.

Waiting for comments/ suggestions from all RANCHERS.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Aparna, the only Sun Certified Business Component Developer for the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 5 (CX-310-091) is available. SCBCD 1.3 is no more.Besides there is no Head first book for ejb3. Enterprise Javabean 3.0 from OREILLY and EJB3 in Action from manning are good books for preparation. Please visit
