hi ranchers..

i finished my scjp 1.4... i would like to do scwcd now.. i have no idea of servlets or jsp.. and also i havent done any projects as of now with those technologies... will i be able to prepare well with head first servlets and jsp or some other scwcd certification book??? is tat good if i start directly with certification books or should i have to study some other books to learns serrvlets and jsp and then come to certification books?? also please let me know if hanumanth deshmukh's scwcd certification book is good for the preparation... am slightly not comfortable with head first. it is a bit strong and messy with all picturs. guide me on this aspect also please. help me out ranchers.. thank you...

I can't recommend hanumanth deshmukh's book. Look for Charles Lyons's book instead. You can download a sample chapter here :

Study carefully with one of the books, make your own samples, refer to the specifications when you need more details, and post questions to the ranch
Refer to the Links and FAQ of the SCWCD too :

You may find Mikalai Zaikin's SCWCD Study Guide valuable. You'll find the link at the Links page.

hmm..i do understand what you think, well, i have couple of books for you to start -

1. Marty Hall-Larry Brown - Core Servlets and JSP
www.coreservlets.com [ you can get the book in pdf here ]
but if you are plannig to buy it, make sure you but the latest edition
and both the volumes ( volume 1 doesnt cover things like security,
jstl, custom tags etc )
2. Murach's Servlet and JSP - this is a one staop solution
www.murach.com

hth !
cheers ! the road ahead is dusty and arid, so accumulate lots of energy
and get going, dont run on the road of prepration, intead take your time,
dont get boogd by the 'benchmarks' (preparation time, preparation sttategies etc)mentioned here on the ranh, intead use these posts to develop your oqn style of preapartaion

hth
