I ordered mine from amazon.ca, waited for 3 weeks and got sick of waiting so cancelled. Now i ordered from chapters.ca because it said will ship in 24 hours. I ordered it yesterday and it says it will be there by sept 20th - sep 23rd. Definitely not a day in canada but hopefully a week.

Will let you know once i get mine.

Some days back I left a thread for Canadian Java Ranchers on this topic. As I had similar issues with amazon.ca and other online bookstores in Canada. Then I placed an order with B&N. They proved surprisingly quick and in less than 2 days I received book. Though I had to pay some additional shipping charges but I think that was worth it as this book is a treat to read. So I would suggest Canadian readers to proceed with them and enjoy the book.

cheers

Alfred,

Well I tried to more emperical in the B&N thread. Actually I mentined exact number of hours ( > 40 as I narrated there). But I think I should have written it in more human ligible language like 2 days. Anyways, where ever you guys get the book , when you'll have it, you would love to read it, if you had read any of other books on the similar subject ( SCWCD ).

Thanks

Yes, I have read SCWCD Exam Study Kit by Hanumant Deshmukh

In addition to SCWCD Exam Study Kit while waiting for HFSCWCD I have read following books
1. HFEJB -also passed SCBCD
2. Pro Jakarta Struts by John Carnell
3. Building J2EE with RUP by Peter Eeles
4. UML distilled by Martin Fowler
5. Almost 50% of J2EE Web Services by Richard Monson Haefel

Hope this helps

Finally, I cancelled my order for HF Servlets & JSP at Amazon.ca.
I put an order at B&N. I hope this time I'll not waste all that time!

Omar if you are in canada I suggest you chapters instead of B&N. Today I recieved my book (it was supposed to be delivered on Friday, but blame goes to Canada Post and not chapters)
Chapters did excellent job and posted it within 24 hours.

I ordered mine from Chapters and received it in 3-4 business days (I opted for the free shipping).
