I cleared OCPJBCD 5 Certification with 98% yesterday
It took me almost 4 months to be fully prepared.
Special thanks to Enthuware for such a full proof exam simulator and also to Mikalai Zaikin for his SCBCD 5.0 Study Guide.
I would like to mention all the references i used for studying in order to help anyone preparing for OCPJBCD 5.
1) EJB 3 in Action by Debu Panda -> This is the best book to study if you are learning EJB From scratch.
2) Enterprise Java Beans 3.0 5th Edition -> This contains more coding examples which will be pretty useful in understanding the actual features EJB has to offer.
3) EJB 3 Specification ( core + persistence + simplified)
4) Mikalai Zaikin's SCBCD 5.0 Study Guide -> A very useful study guide to clear your concepts.
5) Enthuware EJB+ V5 -> Keep solving the questions in the simulator and you will enjoy studying The simulator not only has explanation for why the answer is wrong but also for why it is correct.
The tests are properly set up so that you can determine which sections you need to focus on. For more information visit enthuware website
