All,
I'm beginning to study for the web component exam. I was wondering if I could get any feedback on really good books to buy or not to buy, etc. Here's my thoughts for studying any suggestions would be appreciative as to what to do or not to do.
1. Install TOMCAT 4.0
2. Read Professional JSP
3. Read Java Servlet Programming (2nd Edition)
and do some examples from both.
4. Study the notes off this site ( the best site in the world )
5. Buy JWHIZ and JQPlus exams. Take all the tests till I'm scoring in the 80's on all of them.
Thanks,
Alan

Alan,
Your plan looks good..IMHO you should also read the specifications for JSP and Servlet and try to remember the names of elements and their use within the <web-app> deployment descriptor tags... remember this test is marginally easier than the SCJP so you may try to buy any one of the commercial exams (though there is no harm in buying both, its a question of money). There are many mock exams available for free to practise including one in this web site and many others are being made available by fellow ranchers. You can always clarify any doubts you may have in this forum....
All the best...you can do it...go for it...

Nice plan Alan! Just rename JWhiz and JQPlus as SCWCDWhiz and JQWebPlus as i guess you have already passed SCJP....

Win,
-->Hi Sudhir: where I can get free mock test except the one in this site?
At least links to 2 other free mock exams can be found from this site...btw bookmark this link... http://www.javaranch.com/scwcdlinks.jsp
One is from Sun and other one is from Eduardo...besides the one at this site which you are aware of...
I read someone gracefully mentioning in this forum that he is planning to publish his mock test soon...so be on the lookout....I am sure as and when they become available our friends here will let us know...it may be added to the link mentioned above...
All the best to you...
