I want to give the “OCM Java EE 6 Enterprise Architect Exam Guide” book 5 stars and the CD with the practice exam 2 stars. I'll compromise and give the whole entity 4 stars. What's wrong with the CD you ask? It requires Windows. When I installed it on my Windows virtual machine, I got an error that it could not register the font Lucidia-Sans Regular TrueType. Verify that you have sufficient permissions to install fonts and that the system supports this font.” The software worked fine without the font, so I could have done with the error. Also, the hint button in practice mode (titled “assistance”) looked like a title and it took me a few minutes of searching to find it.

Ok, now that I've gotten that out of the way, let's go on to the actual book. All three parts of the exam are covered. I think part 1 is covered the best followed part 3. This makes sense as part 2 of the exam is more “doing.”

As with other McGraw-Hill books, there are some hands on exercises and each chapter ends with a two minute drill along with practice questions. Some of the questions were true/false and not representative of the exam format. They don't tell you how many answers are correct which makes them harder.

I particularly liked the tables. Both to review topics and to map scenarios to patterns and technologies. This is a skill you need for the exam so it was great to have it highlighted. I like that it wasn't an artificial world. The book mentions Eclipse, Spring, Guice and WebSphere. I also liked the phrase “note that these answers are not necessarily what you might encounter in your workplace.” I was surprised to see so much JavaScript code in the book, but it was apparent that isn't on the exam.

When I look the (SCEA 5) exam, I used the Cade/Sheil book.

This book is well written and full of material. For example, you can see what is expected from an architect, what are the challenges, how to solved them and the possible technical solutions given a scenario.

This book is the entry point to keep preparing. The architect certification is broad and difficult, so, although this helps you to get started, you should have experience coding Java EE apps and keep reading other books. IMO is impossible to cover all subjects in just one book, there are many specs involve and this book makes a decent review one by one. ah! and there is a scenario solved that covers part two and three of the exam.

The cd works "good enough" in my dual boot ubuntu (wine) and perfectly in windows.

If the question is: Should I buy it?, i will say yes, there are others books but that are focused on JavaEE5 and some things have changed (even exam objectives) and also, there are many topics that you shouldn't miss.

Note: as for the certification a good understanding of EJB will help you a lot.

Format: Paperback
This book does a decent job describing the architect exam and the principles needed to pass the first part of the exam, with some insights into the second and third. The introduction promises to take a conceptual approach, which isn’t completely realized in the following chapters, but still means the book will useful to working software engineers interested in architecture, even if they don’t take the certification exam.

Anyone who is seriously considering taking this exam will already have exposure to many of the topics covered here: UML, EJBs, messaging, design patterns, security, etc. Each chapter could be a book on its own, so there’s really not room to go into much detail. The book is laid out to parallel the exam objectives, which makes it a good way to discover your weak areas, but also leads to quite a bit of overlap, and in some cases word-for-word duplication from previous sections. “Exam Watch” sidebars do a good job of relating the text to what you might encounter on the exam, but, oddly, they are sparsely used. There should be more a lot more of these. Diagrams and illustrations are also too sparsely used and don’t always synch perfectly with the accompanying text. They feel like something of an afterthought. The text style varies, and while it is often engaging, there are parts that just seem to be laundry lists of features for the technology under discussion.

Overall, this book fulfills its promise of presenting the concepts needed to succeed on the architect exam. Readers will find themselves skimming many of the sections, since they will already be familiar with the material, but it’s a good review, and I found several places where my own knowledge was incomplete, especially on technologies recently introduced.

You should definitely get this if you are taking the OCMJEA 6 exam. It is not enough to read this, to pass the exam, but it definitely will help. Ditto, the test app that you can download to go along with the book.
