I have cleared OCPJP6 exam yesterday. what should i do next? I wanna go for OCPJWeb Componenet Developer and OCPJ Business Component Developer exam.

Which one should i go first?

I have Head First Servlets & JSP as well as Head First EJB. I have 1st editions of both the books but the 2nd edition is available in the market. Should i buy the new ones or it will do?

I went for the web component exam, passed and I am currently studying for the business component exam.
I am glad that I did because of these reasons:

1. I feel that business component exam has a lot less contents to study for.. if you take the business component exam first, you will be overwhelmed by the web component exam contents.

2. I am using EJB3.1 cookbook as my exam guide and the book uses servlets to test concepts. Since I know servlets, it's much easier!

3. Many of the things I studied for the web component exams are used in the business component exam(mostly, the annotations and security stuffs)

Good luck, whichever way you decide to go.
