Does anyone know what the status is of the Head First books?
Is there any Head First book coming for this exam?

Cheers.

I don't know but I recommend Manning's EJB3 In Action. It has everything you need to pass. After reading the book, Mikalai Zaikin's notes are a good source to review and make your knowledge more accurate. Watch out for questions on API and lifecycle contract, e.g. what are the rules of coding session beans, how the lifecycle of a JPA entity changes on different EntityManager calls, etc.

Thanks for the info
I knew about Mikalai Zaikin's notes and are quite handy, but thanks for the additional topics that need attention

 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
