Hi everyone,

I was just wondering what the forum preference was as to what book to use for this certification.

I was looking at two books:

Scwcd Exam Study Kit: Java Web Component Developer Certification
by Hanumant Deshmukh

or

Head First Servlets and JSP: Passing the Sun Certified Web Component Developer Exam (SCWCD) by Bryan Basham, Kathy Sierra, Bert Bates

I like the reviews and the fact that the Head First book was developed by actual exam developers.

Also, does anyone have any information on whether the SCWCD certification has been updated for Java 5.0?

Thanks for your help!

The favourite book around is HFSJ, although I've never read it.
I cannot recommend Manning's. The dtds in this book (2nd Edition) have not been updated to the new exam, which is pretty annoying.

SCWCD does not use the new API of Java 5.0.

Good luck.
