This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
Since there aren't any "official" cert books out there for this exam, I thought I'd ask here: what do you folks think about RMH's book and how well it addresses the objectives of the exam? I'm very curious since, though I love the book, I have no way of gauging how well it will help me (unless I got off my butt and started mapping objectives to chapters, etc).
I am going thru RMH book. My Opinion -- Book is organized pretty well in parts ( and mostly as per sections in objective list). In addition to that RMH has done a nice job in organizing information within chapters. -- Content of informative and to the point. ( Some books just repeats the same thing again and again which makes it bulkier) The way I see the book, it presents the 1. rule and/or theory 2. example and 3. explaination of example in light of theory/rule. -- I usually read specification which are complicated ( sometimes !!) After reading intial chapter in RMH book (SOAP, WSDL, UDDI), I read WS-I Basic Profile specification. Reading the RMH book before made it so easy to understand and co-relate rules/restriction defined in WS-I BP. May be much to do with marking of rule with superscript BP. -- Simple language.
