I'm in the process of reviewing the SCWCD Study Kit.
I haven't posted my official review in the Bunk House mostly because I haven't received my hard copy of the book from the publisher, and my eyes are having a tough time reading the soft copy.
However, my preliminary review is this:
The book is layed out in a logical straight-forward fashion -- matching up exam objectives with Servlet/JSP topics and even covers a couple things that aren't (yet) on the exam, like Filters. The bundled CD that comes with the book is chock full of excellent resources (3 JWebPlus exams, Tomcat 4, Servlet 2.3 and JSP 1.2 specifications, as well as an electronic copy of the book). The quizlets intermixed within each chapter help you to confirm that you understood what you just read -- and also explain a couple 'gotchas'.
Couple related links:
  • SCWCD Exam Study Kit on Manning's website -- includes table of contents, sample chapter, etc
  • JSP 1.2 specification
  • Servlet 2.3 specification
  • SCWCD Exam on suned.sun.com

  • If you have any questions regarding my experience with the book or what not -- please feel free to ask!

    Hi Jessica,
    I would be really interested in seeing your review of this book, when you have it complete as this is the next exam I was hoping to take. I completed my programmer's certificate last year and general procrastination has stopped me so far getting started with this exam.
    Have you found come across any other good titles on this subject in your research?
    PB.
