I just passed the programmer certification earlier on this week (85%) not great but I think there were a couple easy scope/declaration questions I didn't catch.... anyways, I'm debating which cert to do next... since most of my experience revolves around JSP and Servlets the SCWCD exam would be the next logical step... to that end i'm wondering if there is a book out there that is similar to the Osbourne press book by Kathy and Bert... I found this book to be amazing; it was a fairly easy read, the questions were extremely similar to the real exam, all in all i was very impressed
Does anyone know what the "SCWCD Exam Study Kit Second Edition : Java Web Component Developer Certification" book is like? i see that the first version got a high score in the book section but i'm curious as to how this stacks up...
I second the vote for Head first Servlets & JSP. I am a huge Head First fan anyway, and I really enjoy the way they present the material in a way that makes it easy to understand.

Authors spend a lot of time and effort in writing a good book. We appreciate it by buying it. So no piracy thoughts here please. Head First books are great! The way some of the basic concepts that have been explained is simply brilliant to me! They are my favourite. So far I have bought all of them that have been published though I haven't managed to read all of them, but they are there in my shelf. The first edition of the Manning book has also been one of my favourites and I consider it to be very good.The writing style is differnt, it is concise and upto the point and helped many a SCWCD aspirant to pass the SCWCD1.3 exam easily. The basic concepts were explained very clearly. I do not know about the second edition. I am likely to take the exam in a couple of weeks, so I might buy the book after I pass the exam.(hopefully )
The old edition SCWCD 1.3 Study guide had average customer rating of 4.5(out of 106 reviews) at Amazon. HF Servlets has rating 4(out of 27) reviews at the moment. So, for the fans of the first edition of the manning book, the expectations of the 2nd edition are quite high, but don't know what it would be. :roll:
