My 2 cents about the SCEA for Java EE Study Guide

I bought the book through Amazon on pre-order because I am thinking about taking the exam. I am not sure that certifications are for everyone or every employer, but this book is a great read for ANY Java EE developer who wants to stand out a bit. Basically, I don't think you have to be an aspiring SCEA to purchase this book. This book covers topics that most Java EE developers should understand at a basic level. This book will help you become more of a "big-picture" developer.

Thanks RJ. We tried to make the book more than just a Study Guide for the exam.

DO you say that for sure? I had the same question as to if this book will help me build up a good understanding of J2EE project architectures, or is it just an exam cram book?

It's primary purpose is exam preparation, but there is also very helpful information on understanding architecture and things to consider when doing architecture.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
