I've received the e-mail from Oracle saying I've passed the assignment and I've joined the ranks of OCMJEA.
I'd like to thank everyone in this forum for sharing your experience. It was all a big help, especially while doing the Part2 assignment.
I waited for my results only 2 weeks.

For the part 1 exam I read:
Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for Java EE Study Guide (2nd Edition)
EJB 3 in action by (excellent book)
Core J2EE Patterns
Core JavaServer Faces (3rd Edition)

I mainly worked by Mark Cade's book. Identified the areas I'm lousy at and read more books about them.

For part2:
Got the DreamCar assignment.I followed the example in Cade's book.
Except for the deployment diagram. Many people failed because of this.
Try googling about deployment diagram. There are lot of posts on this forum that are helpful for Part2.
I wrote in detail the hardware specification.Clusters for performance, physical nodes for availability, DMZ for security etc.
Constantly add/edited assumptions while doing the diagrams.

Read UML Distilled by Martin Fowler
Used StarUML(needs some time to get used to)

The essay part consist of 8 questions in which you have to defend your design.
I personally think I could have done this better. You have 2 hours to answer the questions. It wasn't enough to explain everything properly.

Good luck
