which book is good?

EJB3 in Action or Oreilly's Enterprise JavaBeans 3.0

If we just study one of them, can we still pass the exam? Because most of the ranchers who passed the exam are giving a long list

Also, i went through the specification....it sucks me and i don't want to go through it completely...

I just want your correct guidance to a book, with which i can pass!

First of all, I wouldn't start with reading the specification.
It is better to have some understanding of the material when you do.
If you are going for just one book you should choose between the O reilly book or Ejb in action.
In action seems to be the most popular choice here. I have the O reilly book.
Very few people will be able to compare them both
(because hardly anyone reads both)
Both books cover all aspects of EJB, but not in enough detail.
Honestly, passing the exam is going to be hard just reading one of these books.
Pro EJB Java Persistence Architecture is THE guide on JPA.
It will give you roughly enoug detail for the exam I think.
However, the scope is limited to JPA, and you need to know EJB3 as well.

Conclusion: 1) Use one of the books you listed, whichever you prefer.
2) Use additional references (exam sims, MZ guide in links section, specs, etc)

E Lievaart is right: it's hard to prepare SCBCD with one book.
There's another book that is not bad to start :
EJB developer guide by Michael Sikora

If you are new to EJB start with EJB 3 in Action.

EJB in action is better especially for new people.
Oreilly's Enterprise JavaBeans 3.0 is more like a mini spec's ... you can use it as a fast reference to spec's.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
