Get Mark Cade's book. He works for Sun and is directly involved with the Architect exam. Also, just about everyone out there that has taken the J2EE Architect exam has used his book.


Sun Certified J2EE Architect for the J2EE Platform (Part 1)<br />Sun Certified Web Component Developer for the J2EE Platform<br />Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform

Neither.
I'd recommend Mastering EJB(2nd Edition) or Enterprise JavaBeans (3rd Edition) + online resources.
It would also help to get Design Patterns and UML Distilled but they are not strictly necessary to pass Part 1. Online resources would more than suffice for those areas of the exam but they would definitely come in handy for Part 2/3.

I also agree with Chris but the only benefit that I found of Mark Cade Book is that you can know exactly what you have to study for the exam .
Whether that is worth for the price is a personal opinion.

That is a pretty broad statement with no empirical evidence to back it up. Personally speaking, after briefly reviewing the Cade book in Borders, I don't see any benefit to buying it. The book does not comprehensively cover any topic on the exam. It is a good overview but will not replace other resources (and books). If you have the money, be my guest, but don't think it is a necessary resource.
BTW, I didn't use the Cade book.

Hi Ajay,
I feel that you live in India.
Are any of these books available in India?

Mastering EJB is available in non-printable pdf form from here.
Requires registration but that is not too much to ask.

Hi Boney !
Sorry buddy ! I am in Canada.
Doesn't have much information about availability in India.But I think "Mastering EJB" should be available there ,I had bought that book(old edition) there about an year back.

Most of the books should be available in India.
The major publications like Oreilly, Wiley , McGrawHill etc have affiliations with major Indian publications.So the books are pretty easily available and affordable.In fact the price if you compare in dollars is much less in India, since you have to pay in Indian Rupees.
But those books strictly follow the instruction "Only for Sale in Indian Subcontinent."
I always get a coouple of books whenever I go to India.
