The objectives given for the Architect exam on Sun�s Web site are very vague, and it is difficult for people to gain sufficient confidence to sit the exam when it is so unclear precisely what material needs to be covered.
In addition to background reading on any of the technologies mentioned in J2EE, I would particularly recommend:
Learning about RMI architecture and features
Learning about CORBA architecture and features
Learning about EJB architecture and features (probably a good idea to read about JavaBeans first!)
Learning about JDBC architecture (and its relationship with SQL).
Learn a little about OODBMSs and OQL.
Whitepapers available via Sun�s Web site should be quite a help with this.
I recommend �Client/Server Programming with Java and CORBA� by Robert Orfali and Dan Harkey to be very helpful reading.

I wonder if JMS is covered by the objectives given for the Architect exam?

Anything in the J2EE is in the certification.

J2EE covers EJB, JSP, Java Servlets, J2EE Connector, JNDI, Java IDL, JDBC, JMS, JTA, JTS, Java Mail and RMI IIOP.
So, are all these topics covered in SCJEA ?

To some level, though I do not recall anything about JavaMail or Connectors.
If you focus on the core, i.e., EJB, servlets, JSP, and know the basics of the other J2EE techmologies you should do fine.

The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen all at once.
