A while ago I saw a thread "Is Head first real or hype" on this topic and I wondered the same. I was very much pro study kit.

I bought book a while ago and opened it and was disappointed to see the way the book was printed. So I bought exam kit and started reading it.I'm used to reading real tech books and did not like it at all.

But after reading the reviews, I reluctantly started reading the book. I started reading custom tags(I read exam kit several times but due to some reason it did not make sense). And to my surprise it explained very well. When I read through the other chapters I found that it filled all the gaps that study kit did not.

So for all those who are like me who are not reading Head first, because you don't like the book because of the print, please give it another chance. It is a great book.

The authors have done an incredible job explaining the basics and pointing out subtle differences. The coffe cram's and sharpen your pencil are vergy good.

Hi Lavanya,
Congrats for clearing the exam.
I also share your opinion.HFSJ is a great book. It is very easy to learn and remember concepts by going through HFSJ.

Lavanya,

Could you tell me how many questions did you get from Objective 9 and 10.

Thanks!

Kapil,
I think I got around 4 questions from design patterns and 5 questions from Jsp's using tag libraries.

By the way 80% of the questions were similar to either enthuware's test simulator Q's or HFSJ exercises(sharpen you pencil,coffe crams)
