For SWCD 5 in the HFSJSP book at the beginning of every chapter is a list of official objectives for the topic, now I know there is a list of exam topics here, but they're not as specific in their objectives as the previous version of the exam.
Has an actual objectives list been published? I'm just looking at the rather lengthy section the Servlets 3.0 spec "8.2.3 Assembling the descriptor from web.xml, web-fragment.xml and annotations" and thinking "woah how am I supposed to remember all of that!". It would be nice if I could just pick out the relevant bits.

Yes i agree your point. The current objectives are not specific as compared to previous version of the exam.
It is always better to study complete specification to cover all exam objectives.
Note that the latest exam focus mainly on new features like annotations ( for servlet and filters), web fragments, asynchronous servlet feature, etc.
Read all specifications.
Workout examples (available in spec).
Attend mock exams and tests your knowledge level before appearing actual exam.
