Dear all,
Thanks to javaranch for many extremely useful resource and enlightening discussion, I finally cleared SCJP this July. Now I start to prepare for SCWCD.
Does anybody have any suggestion for Core Servlets/JSP by Marty Hall? I read Velmurugan Periasamy's message posted on 10/12, and planned to buy this book. But when I go to www.bookpool.com, I found a few bad reviews. One review said this book is too easy for SCWCD. Any suggestion is appreciated!
Thanks,
Irene

Hi,Core Servlets/JSP by Marty Hall is a good book the problem to use it to study for scwcd exam is that it covers jsp1.1 and servlets2.2 and the current exam covers servlet2.3 and jsp1.2, I�m using the book Professional JSP 2� edition that covers this specs and it�s a great book, but Marty Hall�s book is a good one anyway, you should also download and read the specifications, you can find links for that and a lot more resources at: http://www.javaranch.com/scwcdlinks.jsp
regards.

Can't agree more....
Remember Marty Halls book was published before the exam or the other specs.
I reviewed it in the bunkhouse and thought (still think) it was a very good book. But you will need a little more for the exam, maynot be a whole lot more though...
Good luck.
