Passed the exam today with 63/69. I was new to Servlets/JSP, read HFS and did some of the practice questions on JDiscuss (be careful, some of these are outdated). Lots of tricky questions, know your EL and JSP implicit variables along with their syntax. Also a few questions on dynamic attributes in tag files, these are only mentioned in one of the HSF mock exam questions but know and understand what that question says. I'm not a huge fan of the Head First series, the style doesn't suit me, and if you feel the same you may benefit from creating a comprehensive list of DD elements and implicit variables as you go through the text. It will be much easier to review those before the exam rather than to scour through the book (and its minimal index) for each individual component. To HSF's credit, it did cover pretty much everything that was on the exam. Good Luck.
