1. Prior to learning Struts, I was well versed in Servlets and JSP, and had professional experience developing applications using Servlets and JSP.
2. Prior to learning Struts, I had read books about Servlets and JSP (or taken the SCWCD exam), but had no professional experience developing applications using JSP and Servlets.
3. Prior to learning Struts, I had little knowledge concerning Servlets and JSP.

3 then 2. I started learning struts then realized I needed more experience with Servlets and JSP. Stopped Struts, got versed in Servlets/JSP then came back to Struts.

#2 with failure, then #1 with success.
I tried learning Struts after getting SCWCD when I had very little working experience. I didn't understand it.
I tried learning it again a year later after gaining more professional experience and it made more sense then.

3...I learned Struts, JSP and Servlets all at the same time. I reckon you end up blurring the concepts of each pretty heavily in learning this way - I'm going to go over Servlets and JSP separately as soon as I find a spare few hours
Learning all 3 at the same time is like learning the 'practice' without the 'theory' in any area...I can make stuff work, but I don't really know how it all ties together. Not a nice feeling, I reckon.

So...I'd say I'm really a 2. In fact, even if you attempted to learn Struts with being a 3 in mind, you would still be a 2 because there is no way to learn to write without learning the letters first.

The question now, of course, is how do we get the world at large to spend a few weeks with a text editor and javac before firing up an IDE?
