I will start to prepare the SCWCD very soon. I found that many people who are preparation for this exam study more than one book. If I want to buy 1 book only, which book is the best to cover all the content of the exam? If 1 book is not enough for the preparation, then which 2 books are the best for the preparation?

More Servlets, the Sequel to Core Servlets, covers the latest versions of jsp/servlets. I think you should go for More Servlets and Java Server Pages. It refers to Core Servlets at some places, which is available online for free.

I didn't get More Servlets & JSP but from my experience of Core Servlets & JSP i think the newer one (More) should be chosen if some one goes 4 one book....

Remember no one book is complete. Evenif you read a book it is highly recommended that you go through Servlet and JSP specifications and notes (found on scwcd links page).
All the best

Chintan - well said and a very good point.
More Servlets & JSP covers the 2.3 and 1.2 apps to a certain extent. But for the exam you definitely need more. Esp. it doesn't cover the patterns well MVC maybe (I haven't read these yet).
If you already own Core Servlets & JSP, personally I would suggest that you read the Specs and then follow the examples at http://www.moreservlets.com for the source code etc...and ofcourse it would be nice of you to send a Thank you note to the author.
