Right decision on the "More". Download the specs, sometimes you'll want to look in.

Hi Mike,
It would be better for exam preparation to study servlet specs. You will find handful of information useful for exam and your knowledgebase.

Mehul.

I'm also getting "More Servlets & JSP." I downloaded the "Core" book and the servlet and JSP specs. So hopefully with "More", "Core", the specs, and a couple months I can be ready for SCWCD I have never written a line of code in servlet or JSP though

I am not convinced that 'Core' Servlets serves much purpose for the exam as it is old (uses the old Java Web Server for example) and covers Servlets V 2.2 and JSP 1.1 apart form the fact that is free.
For the exam you'd be better served with the specs, the APIs and 'More' servlets book

I feel that it would be better to go once thru. the specifications as they are very much helpful in the exam as well as to get a good understanding. Though, it takes sometime to go thru. but it is worth enough

if you know servlets & JSP then you can skip CORE but still I will say.. nothing wrong in going once as it has good example and it is FREE
