I would suggest to take the newer version. Right now there are no specific books for this version but you can wait for HF Servlets & JSP that's coming out sometime in June, I think.
If you want to take new exam before the book is out, you can go for Malvia & Hanumanth's and read the specs for other topics which are not covered by the book.
If you want to go for older version, then Malvia and Hanumanth's book is best.
Good Luck.

Hi,
Even I would suggest to take the newer version. JSP 2.0 has lot of new features. reduce lot of development work.

IMO, it is impossible for me to take tests on topics that are going to be pharse out, unless you have a very strong reason.
For example, if your company is working on JSP 1.2, and she pays for the test, it is a different story.
If you need to pay for it, definitely you wont want to study something that is old!

Hi Nicholas:
In SUN website, there are three kinds of SCWCD.
- Sun Certified Web Component Developer for the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition 1.3 (CX-310-080)
- Sun Certified Web Component Developer for the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition 1.4 (CX-310-081)
- Sun Certified Web Component Developer for the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition 1.4 Upgrade Exam (CX-310-082)
The third one looks like the most updated. However, it requires the completion of SCJP(any edition) and SCWCD(CX-310-080).
Does that mean there are two prerequisite for it? I have to take SCWCD 1.3 before I take SCWCD 1.4 update?
Thanks!!
