Other books mentioned in this forum that seem pretty good are the J2EE Blueprints book and UML Distilled. Sun used to list the objectives on the Sun Ed site but they seem to have disappeared.
I don't have my printout of the objectives with me. Anyone have this info handy?

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