Just wanted to share my experience of taking the Enterprise connectivity exam(just to test myself before going for java architect exam).
I went through following books for preparation:
a)sun's blueprints,
b) O'Reilly's EJB,
c)Building Java Enterprise Systems with J2EE
by Paul Perrone, Venkata S.R.K.R. Chaganti
d) some of the discussions in this forum
The exam covered topics related to
a)transactions, transactional attributes
b)design patterns,
c)designing enterprise applications
d)jsp design
e) ejb deployment descriptors
f) choosing ejbs
g) rmi : performance & concurrency issues
h) applet: when do we go for applet
i) databases: configuring & accessing datasources,
connectionpools
j)lifecycle of ejbs
h) cmp and bmp coding differences

The pass percentage is 60%. I scored 75%. The time limit is 90 minutes.
The link for Sun's Blueprints: http://java.sun.com/j2ee/blueprints/apmTOC.html
J2EE tutorial:
I prepared on J2EE topics: EJB,Servlet, JSP, JMS with more emphasis on topics like instance pooling, instance swapping,sessionSynchronization,transactions, transactional attributes, isolation levels, design issues (choosing servlet or jsp, bmp or cmp,stateless or stateful), differences between point to point messaging and publish/subscribe messaging in detail.
for JMS, I used Professional JMS (wrox edition). Servlets and JSP I used Building Java Enterprise Systems with J2EE.
I found that blueprints was very useful for design decisions.

I am going to take architect exam hence I cannot judge which is tougher. I heard that IBM 483 is tougher than architect exam.

Hi Bhagavan,
Congrats on success!
What is the process involved in taking the IBM 483 test? i.e how do you register the test, how much does that cost, etc!
Thanks,
Ram Dhan YK
