I found a link last week that I think would be helpful. A lot of people were complaining about Marty Hall's Core Servlets and JSP book not covering the versions of Servlets and JSP that is necessary for the exam. Then another JavaRancher pointed out the next version named More Servlets and JavaServer Pages (http://www.moreservlets.com). Since Hall had already written one book on servlets and JSP, the rumor is that More Servlets refers to Core Servlets for more explaination on some topics.
So now you can look up those topics online. Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages is viewable as PDF files. Check it out. http://pdf.coreservlets.com/

Please call me stupid. But is that the new book that's free or the old book with the older version that doesn't cover everything on the exam?

Mark,
Unfortunately its the old version (Core Servlets)
Hopefully he'll make the new version free sometime soon.

its the old one. Its Marty Hall, not Bruce Eckel who seems to me quite a very special kind of guy.
But as I allready have bought JSP2 from Wrox I have the new features covered. I expect Marty Hall to be better structured (the Wrox problem). Last week I read the chapter about setting HTTP Headers with servlets (which was free before) in my bathtub and I had to refresh warm water two times.

Thanks April.You saved me a lot of money.
I live in Bangalore,India where this book is available but it's pretty expensive.
(About Rs 1100/-).I had checked this book out yesterday in a prominent book store and found it to be good,but I was pretty worried about it's cost.Now i don't have to buy it.Thanks to you!!.

From what I've heard, More Servlets and JSP is a better book. I'm planning on buying that one and using Core Servlets as a companion to help me sort things out that maybe aren't explained as fully in More Servlets.

Manjunath,
I understand the concern of people in India about buying US books. However, people in US know that India is a big market for IT stuff. If you are a group of people interested in the book, you (all) might consider sending your concernas via e mail to the publisher. Sometimes they make regional copis available that are relatively cheap. Or you might be able to get some discount.
I did this when I was a college student in India and it worked. This is just an idea. I am not sure if it always works. :roll:
