I am using Head First Servlets & JSP along with the specs themselves to study from. So far I have been extremely impressed with the HF book, even though I have run into a couple of errata that have confused me (Check out this topic for example). Other one or two errors inthe book, I am extremely, extremely happy with it and would recommend it.
The book will also uses Tomcat and will walk you through a set up. Good Luck!
