I have read #3 and #4 from your list and I think both are very good and popular books. I learnt a lot from those books. Having said this I will also add that lot of EJB learning is also dependent upon the target application server.

Haven't read #4.

Recommend #2 (highly!!!) and #3. they complement each other.

Would not recommend #1. Superficial and buggy.

Mastering Enterprise JavaBeans really is a very good book.

Two versions are available, one for EJB 2.1 and one for EJB 3.0 - if you have to work with 2.1 you should get a copy of the older version.
