Thanx Nicholas. I would go for HF EJB. What other good books do you suggest so I shall get good grip on EJBs. I want to go for atleast 2/3 books before I gear up for SCBCD Exam.

I would recommend there is nothing better than the EJB 2.0 Specs from SUN.
Just that they are too descriptive and in certain areas far too unnecessary for the exam.
So take down the Objectives from SUn and prepare from Head First EJB, but always keep yr Specs in Handy if u need to refer to anything u r not sure of.
