I�m planning to get a SCWCD certification and want to buy a book. Which one is better,
Head First Servlets & JSP (by Bryan Basham, Kathy Sierra, Bert Bates) or
SCWCD Exam Study Kit: Java Web Component Developer Certification (by Hanumant Deshmukh, Jignesh Malavia, Matthew Scarpino)??

If i take the SCWCD Exam Study Kit I will buy the one that convers J2EE 1.4 (release January 31)

Any other suggestions?

I my opinion.
Actually Head First Servlets & JSP is the best book for passing the exam.
Hope that the second edition of manning book rises the bar even higher.

But the main issue is that, I remember all the concepts taught in the book for my daily work.

The knowledge is retained for a long time after the exam, period. The book is

Thanks
Indrajit.
