Hi All,
I just passed my SCJP today with 85%. And I am planning to take this SCWCD.
Please suggest me some very good books(Like Kathy's book for SCJP).
I am totally new to JSP, Servlets. So, tell me how long does it take to prepare?What would be the good plan of action..like where do I start(Like with what book etc)?
Thanks in advance.
Karthik

Hi Karthik,
Congrats on passing SCJP.
Almost everybody in the ranch agree that
"SCWCD Exam Study kit" by Hanumant Deshmukh and Jignesh Malavia - Manning publications is the book to go for.
I am also currently preparing for the exam; bought the book a week back and is really good.
Visit the javaranch scwcd link for other useful links

Good luck,
Raji.

Thanks Raji. I will go ahead and buy that book. Also I want to know two more things.
1. How long does it take to prepare for the exam? (Assume I have no clue about JSP, Servlets etc...)
2. Can I practice all the concepts I study for this exam in my personal home computer? (As we do for SCJP by downloading JDK.) Likewise we also get all resources from net for free?
Please let me know. I want to plan accordingly.
Thanks,
Karthik

Karthik,
I am not sure reg how long it would take for you to prepare for the exam. For me, I am currently working in JSP and servlets. So, I have estimated about 3 to 4 weeks for my preparation. May be it will take you a couple of weeks more if you are totally new to J2EE. Or if you have more time, 4 weeks should be fine for you.
The book comes with a CD that has a Tomcat server which you can use to run the examples from your home computer I don't think that should be a problem for you.
Good luck,
Raji.
