Hi Folks,

I just cleared SCWCD yesterday, my next step is SCBCD, please could you tell me the best book for the exam preparation ?

I already have the Rezza Rahman book (but there is not mock exams on it).

Head First book are one of the best options, right now they are having Head First EJB, but its for the previous version, i read some interesting post in their site hinting that they are working on the new version and going to be released probably this year, also they were looking for an author for a while.

In the mean time i'm using EJB 3 In Action from manning, so far so good.

Good luck there.
