I don't have EJB or web component certification and I just started studying for this exam.
Read Java Web Service Up and Running, MZ and Ivan's notes and RMH's J2EE book will help.

You no need to study business component certification objectives to attend Web Services Certification. The certification will not test EJB technology in depth instead it asks questions about how EJB can act as JAX-WS endpoint or JAX-RS resource classes. If you are appearing OCE Web Services exam you also need to understand Singleton session bean type introduced in Java EE 6. You need to concentrate more on security stuffs (role based security on EJB tier) by annotations or by XML files.
