This is my first post in Java Ranch. I have used Head First Servlets and JSP. The book helped me a lot to understand the abstruse concepts. I like their style and would owe my success to them.
I started my preparation for SCBCD exam and guess which book I am using..you are right..how would I go for other books when I have my favourite Head First Series out there...
I am determined to get over 90% in SCBCD and I could say this because I found ery good teachers(Kathy, Bert Bates and Basham)...God bless these writers for making so many people like me knowledgeable in the JAVA area.
Kudos to the writers for bringing out spectacular books!
I did the SCWCD with the Head First book and also did the SCBCD with the other Head First book and I love both of them. Just as with the first book, the actual exam seemed to be a bit easier than the test exams
What comes now may sound surprising, but I think the Head First EJB book is better than the Mastering Enterprise Beans book. Despite that there appears to be a lot of wasted space in those Head First books, somehow the information in there is much more specific. Of course, the mastering enterprise beans book covers more ground but it has a lot of vague statements were it good be more specific.
Anyway, congrats on your SCWCD certification and good luck on the next one.
