This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Thank you for your answer. Yes, I agree the experience is what one really needs to obtain this certification, and I have experience.
But as you know, now Oracle has a mandatory course attendance . I was thinking of signing up for the Developing Applications for the Java EE 6 Platform (FJ-310-EE6), which seems also to match the topics in the books you suggested ... I guess not many people have been taking the SCEA certification under the new Oracle requirements.
