Hello everyone. I have started preparing for SCBCD 5.0. I am currently reading the following books :-
1)EJB 3 in action-By Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Derek Lane.- 2007 edition.
2)Mastering EJB 3.0-Rima Patel Sriganesh,Gerald Brose, Micah Silverman-2006 edition.

-Kindly suggest other books for SCBCD 5.0 preparation. Do let me know if i am referring to the incorrect books.
-Do i have to practice using JBOSS? Or can i use other softwares. If yes, which one would you recommend to be the best from exam point of view?
-Any other supporting softwares that you think i would require or which would benefit the exam preparation?
-Please let me know how i must proceed in my preparation as in which books must be read first to provide a stronger foundation from the exam perspective.

Thanking everyone in advance.

O'Reilly's book is also frequently used. Check the link at the SCBCD Links.

-Do i have to practice using JBOSS? Or can i use other softwares. If yes, which one would you recommend to be the best from exam point of view?

I'd use Glassfish instead. I think it's more spec friendly that JBoss is.

-Please let me know how i must proceed in my preparation as in which books must be read first to provide a stronger foundation from the exam perspective.

I'd start with EJB3 In Action.

EJB 3 in Action is a good point to start off as the previous post says.
