When I was preparing for EJB 2 exam, i had the luxury of HeadFirst. Now that I dont have it, I really have to find these clusttered mix of books for reference.

Guys, I am already through with the first 10 chapters in this book. I find these chapters like EJB's mix with Spring, dont really matter for the exam, right? Should we have to go through the entire set of 16 chapters for the exam?

Your help would really help other people reading this post

You don't have to do the chapter related to Spring.

Thanks for your reply Remko.

I also have the following query.

How much is the exam DD (xml) oriented. Is it enough to know all the annotations thoroughly or should a person also know the ejb-jar.xml file completely? In EJB 2.0, annotations were out of scope. One really has to know the xml by heart. But in here, how much importance should be given to elements of this file so that the questions based on the DD can be comfortably answered!

Appreciate your response.

I didn't have any questions related to the xml stuff. So my advice is to have a general knowledge of the xml files. But if you know the annotations well then the xml part should not be a big problem. It's almost the same. I did study the annotations well and from this basis I gained some knowledge of the xml part. I hope this helps.
