I have just begun studying for SCWCD exam with no experience in Servlets or JSP's
I am reading the Hanumant bood.

Did anybody just study the Hanumant bood w/out experience in Servlets or JSPs?

I had no experience with JSP/servlets and read Marty Hall's "More Servlets and JSP" to pass the exam.

Ahoo, you're on the right track. I had the same situation.
Just read through the Manning's book and you can be 100% sure to pass SCWCD (however for getting good score like 90+, you will need to study specs a little bit ).
Goodluck,

I started Marty Hall's "Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages".
Shall I also be -90% OK?
BTW what is the difference of "More Servlets and JSP" with "Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages" (both by Marty Hall).
Is the latter continuation of former?
Is self-contained and therefore repeating previous book?
Can it be considered a substitution? Why it was written?

I've not taken the SCWCD yet (but plan to next year). However I might be able to help explain the difference between the "Core Servlets and JSP" and the "More Core Servlets and JSP"(both by Marty Hall, a super instructor!).
According to the site for "More Core Servlets & JSP" the book is a "companion book" for the "Core Servlets & JSP". From the reviews on the web pages it looks like "More Core Servlets..." addresses the newer technology. "Core Servlets..." uses JSP 1.1 and Servlets 2.2. "More Core Servlets..." uses Servlet 2.3 and JSP 1.2 standards.
Go to http://www.moreservlets.com/ to see what Marty says about "More Core ..", and http://www.coreservlets.com/ for "Core Servlets..."
Also the "More Core ..." explains describes Web application development, deployment, and security in detail.
I would recommend picking up a copy of the "More Core Servlets & JSP" if you are going for the certification. I'm personally using the Hanning book, in addition to experience.
Good luck!
