Most ranchers use Head First Servlets and JSP. You may be interested in Charles Lyons' book too.

I just passed the exam last week. I used 'Head First Servlets and JSP' to prepare.

I do recommend trying to write code that applies each topic that you study (except for the Design Patterns). It will help to solidify the points that the book makes.

My suggestion is to start off with "HFSJ" (Head First Servlets & JSP).

Good luck

HFSJ (Head First Servlets & JSP) gives you a good overview and an introduction
to the material and is easy to understand.

Whatever book or method you use to prepare for the exam, there is no substitute to actually coding the examples that you read and attempting to use the knowledge by yourself. This will force you to think about what you are learning and surface any questions (or the famous 'doubts' that everyone writes about in these forums) that you may have. You will learn a tremendous amount doing it this way.

Head First Servlets and Jsp and David Bridgewater's SCWCD might be a good combination.

There's none. But you can refer to some ranchers' notes. You'll find them at the Links Page
