Sun Certified Web Component Developer Study Guide by David Bridgewater

Second Edition - Head First Servlets & JSP by Bryan Basham, Kathy Sierra, Bert Bates

i think there are less examples to pratice in Head First than SCWCD study guide...

so ,should i purchase SCWCD study guide or the other one ?

In my experience, I used K&B(first edition) which is really cool & fun reading too.... Also covered everything nicely...

And you may check the books section of SCWCD5 for all the related books.

The Head First is really great for novices. Go for it!

Is the head first book enough for this certification preparation?

Hi Mohitkumar,

I used the David Bridgewater book and I can say it was a good book with a lot of difficult questions. The second edition of Head First contains, to my opinion, more up-to-date information. However you need to like the style of writing and you can say that the book is not as good as reference book afterwards as the David Bridgewater or Charles Lyons book.

The important thing: all books are sufficient to pass the exam, but try to use more sources (like the specs and this site) when preparing.

Good luck,
Frits

based on my experience I would recommend two books.

1) Head First Servlet and JSP
2) SCWCD Certification book by hanumant deshmukh.

Cheers
