Hey guys, I am new to this group. I am a SJCP and have over 5 years of experience developing applications for a company. I wanted to take the SWCD exam and wanted to know which one would be one of the best books to study for the exam. I know Servlets and JSP, just need to study according to the exam requirements. WOuld be very nice of all of you if you could point me to all the resources. Thank you very much, Amit.
Welcome to JavaRanch.com I would recommend SCWCD Exam Study Kit of Hanumant Deshmukh, Jignesh Malavia, Jacquelyn Carter for the current version of SCWCD exam and Head First SCWCD of Bryan Basham, Bert Bates, Kathy Sierra for the upcoming version of SCWCD exam Hope above info might help you...

Hi Amit, I am preparing for the exam and there seems to be a consencus about Exam Study Kit, Java Web Component Developer Certification Study kit by Hanumant Deshmukh and Jignesh Malavia. This is the one I am using for the test. But, there seems to be a question for the new exam. This book does not cover the new material for the new test. I was planning in getting the work done now, and then doing the upgrade in a few months unless I take the beta test. You have to decide to go for the new exam or the current exam. The differnces are the new specifications for JSP and Servlets. I am still learning, please, let me know if I got it wrong... George

Hi George, What I would think right would be reading the specs and also going through the kit. I am in the process of reading the specs already. Lets find out what is missing when in the the kit as compared to the specs and take it from there. Amit.
