Hi there.
Does anyone here knows if the old version of the Head First: Servlets & JSP book covers all the topics for the new test?

Thanks.

Hi Mauricio,

The objectives for the new exam are the same as for the old. We added a bunch of new questions to the new book, we fixed errors, and we added a few pages here and there to improve a few topics. If you have the old book and Bryan's dynamic attributes tutorial (which you can find on this site), you should be good to go with the old book.

If you haven't bought either book yet the newer one is better because we cleaned up errors, added a second batch of mock questions and added those few topics. But if you already have the old book - don't buy the new one unless you're rich - in which case, buy a dozen

hth,

Bert

Hi Bert!
Thank you for the quick response and for the excelent books
I already have the old version of the book which I bought a long time ago (i also have other head first titles, i'm a great fan of this series).
But... as i have the translated version of the Servlets & jsp one, maybe in the future i'll buy the new version, in english this time
