I just got home from the test. It was pretty straight forward but there were some tricky questions that you had to read several times. Know Listeners and what methods are called when an event occurs. Know Taglibs well. There are more taglib questions than bean questions.
I used only the Manning book, the three JWebPlus tests that came with it, and info on this site. I got 91, 85, and 88% on the three tests. I got 83% on Anand Chawla's test. I have been working with servlets and servlet conatiners for a couple years but never with JSP, beans, or taglibs.
One thing I did that really helped out with taglibs was memorized the flow chart on page 325 of the Manning book, and then drew it on the scratch paper as soon as I sat down at the testing PC before starting the test. This gave me a reference to look at for taglib questions and I didn't have to visualize the process in my head. It just made things easier.

Vivek -- maybe they'd give you two boards if you asked?
