I tried to look for the answer to this question, but couldn't find any satisfactory answer. If we prepare for SCJP, SCBCD, SCDJWS , we have a fixed set of books and notes that can be studied.

I am looking for the same kind of information for SCEA-I. Like I should study first this and then.. Any pointers will be of great help

SCEA is quite different from other sun certifications.
It really tests your concepts, and books can give you the knowledge only upto a certain point. After that you need to use your brain and internet for clearing your doubts.
The books i am using are-
Design Patterns by Gang of Four
Core j2ee design patterns
Enterprise Java Beans - RMH
Mastering EJB - II edition
Professional EJB 3.0
Mark Cade's Architect Book

Though most of the material is outdated for SCEA 5. But i am also looking for a book targeted at SCEA 5.0

Thanks And Regards,
