Hi all,
I am planning to take up SCWCD exam and from the previous posts in this section I learnt that Head First Servlets and JSP is a good one. So I was browsing through amazon to buy that book. But there I came across two versions of it
1. Head First Servlets and JSP: Passing the Sun Certified Web Component Developer Exam (SCWCD)
2.Head First Servlets and JSP

I wanted to know whether these two books are same. I want to buy a book which is focused on the exam and has mock questions. I see the MockExam Included label only on the first book(Which is not avilable until 1st April). Does the second book include suffecient mock exams and is that focused on the exam?or it is a book which teaches the basics like Head First Java? Is there any other link where I can find the features of the book?
Please give me your valuable feedback on deciding which book I should buy.

Thanks in advance.

That red label on the top corner reads "2nd Edition - New Mock Exam Included". So, that book willl be the new edition coming out soon. It will have many errata corrected and it will have a brand new final mock exam. Amazon's release date also says March 15th; I'm not sure where you read April 1st.

This book is focused on the SCWCD exam.

You could look at the exam objectives. The book is based on the objectives. Also, you should check out our ScwcdFaq and ScwcdLink pages.
