Hi Hari, I am from India. I am also going for SCEA. I will suggest you that If You are concerned about certification then you must keep the Exam Objectives in front of you. I will suggest you to read the Book fully and More concentrate where you are getting the answer to your Objective. When you start J2EE You must first Study the BOOK "Designing Enterprise Applications with the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (The Java Series) by Nicholas Kassem, Enterprise Team Addison-Wesley Pub Co at least first 4 chapters ar most Important. Ejb O'really Book is required except Ed Roman.. I hope this will help you
