Hi,
I have taken and passed the SCJP and SCJD examinations and am now in a job that requires me to understand web architectures and develop JSPs, custom tags and beans.
I think the SCWCD is possibly a great certification to do to cover these. Can anybody recommend a good book that teaches what is required for the exam and is not necessarily a study guide?
Thanks
Mark

Hi,
Firstly, your name I believe is against the JavaRanch policy so you will be asked to correct that.
Moving on. By far the most popular book for the exam is SCWCD Study Kit and it is actually very very good to get to know Servlets and JSP. But to go grounds up I would recommend the book by Marty Hall. You can get the core Servlets free in PDF from www.coreservlets.com - here there are some very good examples.
For tags etc, I would recommend JSTL in Action, which covers the standard tags and are IMHO very useful.
HTH
