Thanks for everyone's help and the fantastic resource that is this forum.

For anyone who is studying for the exam, I have some notes that I made to help me revise and they are available for download. They are available in Visio and PDF format. Leave me a comment if you find them helpful.

My advice for anyone doing this exam:

1. Buy Head First Servlets and JSP. It's a really good book. There are a couple of areas it's weak on and there are a few important mistakes, but it did make the process much less painful.

2. Read Servlets and JavaServer Pages: The J2EE Technology Web Tier to revise the concepts. Unfortunately, there are quite a few mistakes in this book too (why don't they hire me to proof read this stuff?).

3. Scan through the Servlet and JSP specification documents.

4. Do all the exams on http://www.j2eecertificate.com.

5. Monitor the Java Ranch Forum(!)

Great efforts....david!! you deserved to be more than 92%!!....pl. tell me what happens when JSP page translation time?

1. converts jsp to servlet (.java)
2. checking the tag syntax? or java syntax? (both happens at tran. time?)
3. create the class file?

I am quoting David Bridgewater Page 366.
"You'll see that the exam objective we're covering talks about translation followed by JSP page compilation as two separate stages. My understanding of the spec tells me that translation includes servlet source compilation(as well as syntax checking and servlet source generation). You are unlikely to encounter a question in which this distinction matters. Just be aware that "translation" is slightly ambivalent, even within documentation originating from Sun."
