You have to be careful with Manning's book, as it contains lots of material not updated for the new exam. Check some user comments at Manning's Author forum.

Unless someone can point me to a link which explicitly states that here is the material which was not updated. I would still recommend this book. Without the appendixes its only 400 pages long. Has unique features (summaries, quick preps at the end etc) that head first doesn't have. All the exam objectives are taken step by step and they map exactly to the ones given by SUN. it doesn't pretend to be both a learning book and a certification study guide. Its strictly a study guide. Anyone who isn't at least moderately well versed in servlets and JSPs shouldn't even think about certifications.

A lot of people feel this way. Personally, I'd rather that the people I work with learned JSP and Servlets first through studies rather than purely by trial and error on my project and ruin my codebase.

These are not mutually exclusive ideas. You should be able to do all the things that are in the certification objectives. Not just be able to answer the questions and therefore pass the exam, but really be able to do them. How do you learn. trial and error is not good for the people around you or on your team. You can start by reading the certification guides to see what you need to learn, learn them the right way and apply them to gain experience. Once you have this experience and its accompanying knowledge passing the certification exam is a breeze. You wil be able to figure out the answer to any question because you know the subject.

they really go hand in hand
