Hi

Iam a new member in this site and felt very happy tht i have registered in such a gud site of many knowledgable persons.I have passed scjp1.4 with 88% a month back.Now iam planning to take scwcd1.4 .I read previous posts n other forums abt which book to select for the exam.

These r the books tht r suggested by many members:

1.Head First Servlets and JSP by Bert Bates, Bryan Basham and Kathy Sierra
2.Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages (JSP) by Marty Hall
3.SCWCD Exam Study Kit by Hamunant Deshmukh and Jignesh Malavia.

Any experienced persons suggestions will be greatly appreciated as to which book to buy.I want to study evrything from one book.I have fundamental knowledge of servlets n jsp's..Iam planning to write exam in 1 1/2 month..
Thx.
Mysha.

Hi,

Firstly well done on passing SCJP 1.4 and welcome on board.
Secondly, the second book you had on your list 'Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages (JSP) by Marty Hall' is a 2 volume set of books. Volume 1 is great, unfortunately it will not provide you with enough information to pass the exam. Some of the information you will need is in volume 2 which I believe is not being released till the end of this month, which may make your 1 & 1/2 month timeline very tight.

Books 1 and 3 are for the exam. Book# 2 is for reference.

I recommend book #1 as I am using it.
