I am new to EJB concepts.I am planning to write SCBCD - EJB 3.0.Many people are suggesting to be thorough with the specifications.I was trying to download the specs from the link
I have a query in downloading the specs from this link.
There are two downloads mentioned in the link.
1)Click on the button below to download the Specification for evaluation or to build an application that uses the Specfication
2)Click on the button below to download the Specification to build an implementation of the Specfication
My doubts are
1)Of the above two listed options which one should i download?
2)In both the options,there are 3 more links to download 3 pdfs with the same name - one with persistence,one with ejbcore and one with simplified.
Of the above mentioned 3 things,which one i should download and study for the exam.

I want to know whether we can start with specs and then go for EJB 3 in Action and rest of the other books listed in the forum already...

Please guide me the series of things(study materials,links to refer) to be done so that a beginner like me will acquire more knowledge gradually and more easily and complete the certification successfully.

Thanks in advance for your valuable suggestions.

You need to read the core and persistence but I have downloaded all 3.

I would recommend the Bill Burke or EJB3 in action first however...

SCJP 1.4<br />SCBCD 5
I agree. Here's the link:
