IBM 287- Could not clear

Hi All:

I took the exam today but could not clear it.

I read HFEJB, HF servlets and JSP and Kushner and thorough with all of them

I cleared WCD and BCD with ease , so was comfortable in those areas.

However, I felt the test was too beyond the actual sample tests that IBM provides and these 3 books were not enough.

I felt some topics were also totally new.

Can anyone of you suggest what are the other books that I need to read.

I want to give the exam again next month.

I do not have experience in Java/J2ee.

Please suggest me the right books.

Thnaks in advance
