Big thanks to Bryan, Kathy, and Bert for an outstanding book. My goal was to score above 90% and I HF Servlets & JSP was a huge help.

For those interested let me testify

I had spent three weeks studying for the WCD1.3 exam when I found copy of the book after which I decided on 1.4 certification. I studied the HF book exclusively for a week, took the mock exam (got 46 out 69 correct), then studied the three specs: Servlet2.4, JSP2.0 and JSTL1.1 for two days prior to taking the exam. I also took the free mock exams at JDiscuss never making more than 85%. Of course, I also spent alot of time playing with Tomcat 5, "Hey, I wonder what would happen if I did this.."

One thing I thought was very considerate of the HF authors was the annotated mock exam answers complete with cross-references to the specs. nice..

Good luck to everyone preparing.. Study hard, you can do it

Inspiring story Tobin. Useful information for me if I ever get so far as studying for SCWCD (still have to study for SCJP....). Glad to hear the details of someone else's study path including coding and experimenting

Great work on your test.

I am just on my way to write my SCJP this morning and was looking for reviews on the HF Servlets book, and this article firmed it up for me.

Second stop after the exam will be the local book store to buy HF Servlets + JSP.
