Hello,
I'm an experienced JSP/servlet/Bean programmer who is checking out EJB's for the first time. I have Professional EJB's from Wrox, but it may be more appropriate for an intermediate EJB developer, not for me. What resources do you recommend for a newbie?

I think the previous poster meant the book "Enterprise JavaBeans" by Richard Monson-Haefel from O'Reilly. That's an excellent book for a beginner. Make sure you download the workbook for your EJB server that goes along with Richard's book.
Ed Roman's book is a good resource too, but I'd probably start with Richard's first, then read Ed's.

To me, Ed Roman flows thru much more easily. You can read it like a novel. Haefel (O'relly) is also very good book. But its flow is not as smooth as Ed Roman's. You might need to read it again if you are using Haefel as the first book. I read Ed Roman first. Then I read Haefel. Haefel helped me understand the concepts and what exactly happens in the EJB world once I had the basic understanding from Ed Roman. You will find Haefel easier if you read Ed Roman first.
But I strongly recommend reading BOTH the books.. in whatever order you feel comfortable with...
