previously i have only very small knowledge on ejb but i have very good exp on hibernate, so hibernate help me understand JPA part very quick & easily
Transactions & Exception handling,Persistence Context propagation all needs to understand in details, here nothing to remember
i think Ejb overview, session bean,message bean & some others chapters is very easy to undestand.
needs to reads & remember some points on security & role-responsibilities(deployer/administrator/Bean Provider etc)-this all are very easy to understand but a little problemetic to remember.
i have done some basic fundamental practice following Mikalai Zaikin (II. Appendices chapters) , its help me to setup development environment very easily & quick , got some practical knowledge of ejb & hence i improve my confident
i follow Enterprise JavaBeans Edition 5 Oreilly's Book to understand overall knowledge of ejb & study guide made by Mikalai Zaikin for knowing some good points thats helped me for certification exam.
