Hi

I am plannning to write SCBCD in April this year.
I want to start my SCBCD preparation.
I had read old posts of this forum where fellow ranchers have suggested different books to do preparation.
So, i am bit confused.
I have basic knowledge of EJB 2 but i have never used EJB 3 in career so I would appreciate if fellow ranchers can suggest me the best book(s) to do SCBCD preparation.

Thanks

@ Abhay
For EJB3.0 refer EJB 3 in Action from Manning publication
For EJB2.1 refer Head first EJB also refer Mastering in EnterpriseJavaBeans 3rd Edition by Ed Roman

There is huge difference between EJB3.0 specification and EJB2.1 specification.
You can directly go to EJB3.0. As said you already have basic knowledge of EJB2.
For example you can use your EJB as simple POJO(Plain Old Java Object) as well as Enterprise JavaBeans in EJB3.0 specification.
