Hello everybody,
I am planning to start studying for SCWCD exam and have already purchased the Head First Servlets and JSP book. I do not have experience in coding Java servlets, so thought of getting hands-on experience by writing small programs before I go into exam details. I came across two books
  • More Servlets and JavaServer Pages here is the link
  • Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages 2nd Edition and the link is here


  • Can anyone tell me which book is good from the above two ? or if anybody has other book in mind do let me know. My intention is to try out simple applications to understand the servlets and JSP concepts clearly , before I start digging in HFS book.

    Thank you to everyone in advance.

    both books are good. and there are a lot of overlaps in the books. if you are brand new to this area - servlet/jsp development, it maybe better to start with the 2nd book. just FYI.

    Thanks Tony !!! I will follow your advice and go with the second book. Also I saw your posts regarding 70-315 Microsoft exam in which you secured 100% congrats . Have you posted the details about your preparation for 70-315. If yes, could you post the link ?
    Which book did you refer for the exam ?

    MCAD/MCSD Training Guide (70-315): Developing and Implementing Web Applications with Visual C# and Visual Studio.NET
    by Amit Kalani
    Is that good one ?

    Appreciate your inputs...

    re: HF book ok also for scjp who are beginners in jsp/servlets?

    given a scjp, with little knowledge on jsp and servlets ( only 1 small distributed application during my graduate school 2 years ago ), would HF book be ok for me? let's say, it doesnt matter if i go for scwcd; is this book tolerant enough to my level(beginner).....although i really intend to take scwcd later?

    will appreciate comments greatly

    More Servlets book covers Servlet 2.3/JSP1.2.
    Core Servlets book(2nd edition) covers Servlets 2.4/JSP2.0.

    I think the SCWCD exam also covers Servlets2.4/JSP2.0.

    So I suggest go for Core Servlets book(2nd edition) or read Kathy's HF book(SCWCD study guide) and then go for the Core Servlets book. Kathy & her team anyway cover the basics very well in their book.
