Why isn't there a SCBCD book to buy for Java EE 5?

I was wondering why isn't there a exam study kit (book) for SCBCD, Java EE 5

Don't get me wrong. EJB in Action and Mikalai Zaikin study kit are superb. However, I feel I wouldn't be comfortable writing a test unless I have done some practice question and see what kind of mistakes I would potentially make in the test.

I kind of need some books like the McGraw Hill ones for SCJP and SCWCD.
I know there is a Mannings SCBCD book but it is only for Java EE 1.3 I think...
I dont trust the websites enough. They are expensive, and any positive review for those packages I see online just don't seem credible enough (to me, anyway).

So, is there a better source for me? Are those free (sample) practice questions online good enough? (http://faq.javaranch.com/java/ScbcdLinks)

Thanks

Hi,

On that very link you posted, there are links to 4 books which contain material useful for this exam.
In fact, there is the Manning book which afaik is very up to date?

You can find some free mock exams on the internet.

About your question, I think maybe it's because there are many good books for EJB 3 already, writing a SCBCD 5 book is quite risk.
