I found Java SOA Cookbook(By Eben Hewitt)[Oreilly] quite useful for exam certification. 10-15% content of it outside exam syllabus(ESB and stuff like that) otherwise it is full of explanatory examples(The way Oreilly Cookbooks are written).

Thanks and Regards

I am glad you tell us about this Java SOA Cookbook.
I have just ordered it online and never read this book before.
Which chapters are helpful for the exam?
ESB? Do you mean EJB?

Not Exactly...

ESB means 'Enterprise Service Bus'. An excellent example of it could be AquaLogic/Oracle Service Bus.

Service Bus is a middleware technology which is very broad SOA topic and not in anyways related to the WebServices exam. You can safely skip it from the Cookbook.
I agree. Here's the link:
