I think the Study Kit is a great book. I used it to study for the 1.3 test and passed easily.

The "SCWCD Exam Study Kit' - excellent book for 310-080, but if you go for 310-081, you need additional material for new topics.

Note, Manning releases 2-nd edition in January which will be for 310-081.

Dan,

I used Study Kit and HFS to pass my exam.
In order to consider HFS, here is the formula:

1: Read Cover to Cover Head First Books ( Anybook in this series )
2: The outcome will be solid understanding of the subject
3: Now read any other generally recommeded good book on the same subject.
4: You will have planty of information and practical ready to run and verify examples.

If you follow this formula, definetly you will be ahead of others in your particular subject. HF is not very detailed in terms of code examples, but it has no match when making concepts solidify, so you need another book for all other practical purposes.


cheers
