You could probably start with....


reading them?



Seriously, I started with EJB in Action, followed by Enterprise Java Beans. During that time I did some coding to test things myself. Then I went for the specs, and read ejb-core and jpa specs, taking notes of my own. Then, I read bits of Pro EJB (for example, XML chapter, and query language chapter as it has nice examples).
Pozdro.

Here are the steps from my side

1)Ejb3 in Action by Reza (gives you good background to start)
2)EJB3.0 from Orielly (have code examples to practice and test on Jboss)
3)Go through EJB3.0 CORE specs and JPA specs
4)May be can try MKZ notes (for final revision)
5)Some mock exams

Currently i am in step 2) and quite happy with this plan

Is there any book that its each chapter begins with content and ends with checking test? I know that there are books like this for EJB 2.0 but as you can guess I need EJB 3.0 's book

I started working on SCBCD myself, following the plan most of you suggested, currently I'm reading EJB 3 in Action.

what is enough for the exam? should I read the book again and memorize the annotations, descriptors, ...etc? or should I start reading Orielly's ? I know and focus on that one?

help me please because I feel little bit lost here since there is no Head First EJB 3
