Hello I would like to have the Web Component Certification but where do I start, I have a book but then I heard that the same book came with an exam in another edition, is it very important to have that exam and study it? or only the book?.. are there good mock exams online ?.. also I dont even know where I should get the voucher... is there a specific site with those?.. let me know please..

Regards.

You haven't mentioned the book which you are using.
Please refer to SCWCD Links page in Javaranch. You can find list of materials and available mock tests there.
As for voucher, you can get it from Sun's website.

The book should help you learn your way through the technology, and develop key exam skills. A good book will have plenty of test questions in it too, so you can practise and hone your technique along the way. You won't need any full exams until your knowledge is solid and your results on the test questions are good too.

A mock exam (online, on paper or as part of a software package) will help you review all that you've learnt and give you a chance to test how well you perform answering 63 or so questions in one go. You'll probably want to try at least two mock exams before going for the real thing.

I dont even know where I should get the voucher... is there a specific site with those?..

You're SCJP certified right? Then you know what you did for that, so repeat the basic procedure once again

Charles Lyons books are amazing.
If you want buy Head First Servlets & JSPs too, It's VERY good to beginers.
With both the books you are VERY ready to exam.

Thank you,
Higor

I would suggest HFSJ (read through twice) - > then Enthuware mock exams -> HFSJ final coffee cram -> optionally then read through JSP spec.
