SCJEA covers a very wide area. But good preparation can make it done and more then that it will teach you alot.
mostly recommended BOOKS for SCJEA:
- Enterprise Javabeans by Richard Monson-Haefel
- Design Patterns by Erich Gamma
- Java Design Patterns by James Cooper
- UML Distilled by Martin Fowler, Kendall Scott, Grady Booch
Some MOCK exams I know:

Take a look at The bunkhouse for some useful books!

The only thing I would add to Faisal's list is the BrainBench site. They have a EJB test that is pretty good.
Faisal - Please review the JavaRanch naming policy and think about re-registering.

Brainbench is planning to charge fees for the exmas it seems. Just to make sure that everybody else knows. As of now it is free of charge.
