And, I'll reiterate, please do not think of the SCEA as a kind of SCWCD but then for the full J2EE platform with EJBs and stuff. It isn't remotely like that. It is for architects who wouldn't be able define a home interface if their life depended on it.

Besides, despite illusions we like to entertain, most of us don't implement the type of enterprise system the SCEA certification is aimed at.
it is not the place to "learn about EJBs" in any kind of detail.
What I mean is that the SCEA will not help you learning about EJB development. It will teach you something about architecting with EJBs, which is a comletely different activity.
