There is more publicly visible stuff on my site than any other single site on this topic. I also include links to the relevent section in the excellent concise notes by Mikalai Zaikin. As for books many people swear by the Head First Book on the SCWCD exam, but check out the book by Charles Lyons as well. Check out the links in the FAQ.

Marcus,

I looked at the ptr for SCWDC you have provided and its very good. I have a couple of questions. As always I think you rock.

a) Is this material going to be removed soon?? i.e. is this posted temporarily or will be there on the web for some time?
b) I also saw some reference to "some commercial coarse for SCWCD"? What is this course all about?? Can some details be provided about it? I am planning on taking this exam in a 2-3of months time. [I am done with SCJP 3 days back and I am planning on working on SCJD, SCWCD in parallel ]

2) Book by Charles Lyons seems to be good; the doallr is falling like a rock against Pound and hence buying "Asian" edition seems to be a good deal. I am in US, and can I buy Asian editions???

Thanks
--Vishnu

No I'm afraid not - distribution of the low-price is restricted to a subset of Asian countries only. You might instead want to check out the publisher's website (www.garnerpress.com) - there are regularly promotions on there which make the book cheaper even after doing the currency conversion (and there's a utility for that too so you can compare at the current exchange rate).
