What do you know so far? If you know Java, the first step would be to get a book on Servlets and JSPs. The Head First one is good.

Before you do anything else, read this. It explains why you need to learn Servlets at the same time as JSPs. If you find a book that doesn't cover both, don't buy it!

Also make sure that the book covers modern JSTL and EL.

I also always suggest newcomers to servlets and JSP read these articles:
  • The Secret Life of JSPs
  • The Front Man

    In my opinion, the most important aid to learning servlets and jsp is having your own local Tomcat server to experiment with. Tomcat comes with servlet and jsp examples - easy to modify and experiment with.
