I don't know about Deshmukh's book but I know HFSJ 1.5 is best book
in the planet for preparing SCWCD 1.5.

However,I suggest you to go through servlet specs(api only) and jsp specs(for
EL,Custom Tags only)after you have completed Marcus Green's tutorial.

best regards,
omi

As you say, HFSJ is a suggestion by a lot of very happy readers - but if you find you understand the book you have then stick with it. It's probably worth reading at least one other source though to fill in any gaps or errors in the first book. This 3 steps to success recommendation also starts with Deshmukh as an alternative to HFSJ, and he got over 90% in the exam!

Well that's a contradiction! How can you know HFSJ is the best book without also having read the other titles?! It may be good for you, but you can't make any form of comparison without having experienced what else is available. Also, of course, what is best for you may not be good for someone else...
