Hi!,
I am a Sun Certified Java 2 Programmer. I did SCJP in 2003. I now plan to go for the SCWCD exam. I have the Head First Servlets book (August 2004, Indian reprint). I believe that this book is sufficient for the exam.

I was a regular rancher while preparing for SCJP, I lost the link cause of academics. Is there any other book required for the preparation. What about the errata of Head First Servlets book. Is it available online?

Regards,
Kunal
SCJP

The errata is over here: http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/headservletsjsp/errata/

I myself am preparing for the SCWCD exam, and have it scheduled for July 22. And I am getting quite frustrated with this book. Especially for the latter half of the chapters, it seems like information inside the chapters is only sufficient to answer 2/3 of the end of chapter mock tests. If this holds for the actual exam, that would mean we need to know by heart at least 90% of everything in the book just to pass! If to trully prepare for the test we need to study the Servlet and JSP specs and API, what is the point of reading Head First Servlets and JSP???

Sorry, just needed to vent a bit.
