hai, congratulation to those who have passed the exam.I know the fundamentals of jsp and servlets. i did programming also but not in deep.i did not know tags,not much in dtd and little in jsp. do i need work experience to give the exam ? i am not enough confident that i will pass the exam with the knowledge from the books. can any one assure me that can i pass the exam by studying and not having real work experience? thanks, Indira
Hi Indira, I think a lot of people here have no or little real work experience with servlet/jsp development or payroll-programming at all. You can add some flesh to the more or less theoretic stuff by developing a medium complicated project for yourself (better is to discuss it with s.o.. I even realized that in my own project the_very_layered_mock_exam_generator there is a serious doubling of instance variables in the JSP-Bean layer // business-logic-layer. But this is another story. You learn with both: With the project you get a feeling for design - issues. The good thing is that you just need Tomcat which should run on more or less every desktop computer. And not such a freaky (Rahul Mahindrakar calls it extremly userfriendly) IBM-WebSphere4.0 monster I am struggling with @work. With learning for the examen and participate here you get a lot of knowledge and you share interesting insights with others.

nobody can assure anything. I was like you when I started but I passed. Try taking mock and see where you are. For tags, there can be nothing better than chapter 14 of core servlets and JSP (free book and free sample chapter at many places). Good luck Chintan
