Hi all,
I am currently preparing for the SCEA version 5.0. I have some queries regarding the new exam version. Could you tell me the exact differences between the version 5 of the exam and the earlier versions from the exam objectives point of view.
Also another question is that as the exam has been upgraded, and most the downloaded material i have is for the old exam i guess like the Cade's book. Could you suggest me some useful resources for the newer version. The books i am using are

Mark Cade's SCEA
Head First EJB
Professional EJB 3.0
Core J2EE design patterns
GOF uml book

Is there any thing else i am missing here.

Thanks

I hope when you said "downloaded material" you're not referring to pirated stuff.

Anyway, here's a list of other recommended books for SCEA 5.


SCJP 1.2 (89%), SCWCD 1.3 (94%), IBM 486 (90%), SCJA Beta (96%), SCEA (91% / 77%), SCEA 5 P1 (77%), SCBCD 5 (85%)
