Don't know if it's the best book, but I'm using Wrox's Professional IBM Websphere 5.0 Application Server, which is written by IBM people. ISBN is 1861005814.
Seems like a good book to me. I'm also a big fan of Professional Java Server Programming J2EE Edition ISBN 1861004656. It's not Websphere specific, but it contains a huge amount of useful material for J2EE programming in general.

Hey Karl:
Thanks for your suggestion. I don't know about this book. But I had a very bad experience with Wrox books. Their print is so small that it is strain to read one complete page at a time.
Don't know whether I have to buy their product again for this exam. Because it seems somewhat related to the exam objectives.
