Is this a good reference/kit to study for SCWCD?

Hi,
I have on my hand Java Specifications (by Sun) for JSP 1.2 and Servlet 2.3. Will they suffice (at least as startup) to get ready for this exam?
Thank you very much for the help!

I think sun specfication for servlets and JSP are the first place to start and then you can move on to the design patterns.
All the Best and Welcome to SCWCD world.

The specs are more of a reference, and not a "how-to". They won't give you any code samples, and they won't show you how different features can be brought together to solve a problem. If you're new to servlets and JSP, my recommendation would be to get a good book or two and/or work though a tutorial. There are some great links to such material in the SCWCD links page. Good luck, and welcome.

Although having a book may be nice, it's worth pointing out that essentially the same info is available on Sun's website, here: http://developer.java.sun.com/developer/restricted/patterns/J2EEPatternsAtAGlance.html
You'll find all you need for the exam there.
The book gives sample code with the pattern descriptions, and contains some additional information which would be more useful when you come to apply these ideas in the real world There is some discussion of "design considerations" (eg: issues in security & session management, pros and cons of different bean types, etc), bad practices to be avoided, and refactorings to improve design.
Good, but not essential.
