Head First JSP & Servlet is the best book for the exam and beginners.

Please read posts ;)
The question was not only about Servlets&JSP but also about EJB and RMI
You can read about these topics in Mastering EJB 3.0 and in EJB 3.0 in Action (I'm not sure is in Action there is a chapter about RMI). There is no book from Head First series (actually there is but based on EJB2.0 spec)
And in near future there should be new books about EJB3.1 and JSP2.0 ;)
