Hi,
A few months ago I took the Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 7 and now I wanted to take the Oracle Certified Expert Java EE 6 Web Component (1Z0-899).
I studied for the OCP by K&B7 and I was fine and so now I'm looking for a book of the same type that allows me to make an optimal preparation for the acquisition of certification Web Component.

Which book do you advise me?

Waiting for your reply, I have done some research and I was able to understand that the best way to prepare for this certification must study this book

Head First Servlets and JSP: Passing the Sun Certified Web Component Developer Exam

http://shop.oreilly.com/product/9780596516680.do

covering Java EE 5


and then integrate with chapters 8, 11, 12 and 21 of this book


OCEJWCD Study Companion: Oracle Certified Expert Java EE Web Component Developer Exam 1Z0-899

http://www.amazon.it/OCEJWCD-Study-Companion-Certified-Component/dp/0955160340

covering Java EE 6


it is advisable to proceed in that way because the second book actually discusses topics in a less thorough than the first and then the preparation may not be optimal.

I would like your opinion.

To that link it is only recommended "OCEJWCD Study Companion", while "Head First Servlets and JSP" is recommended, rightly, for the previous version of the exam.
I've read that "OCEJWCD Study Companion" is a great book but not so basic as you would expect so many advise to study prior to "Head First Servlets and JSP".
Nobody has studied from "Head First Servlets and JSP" and then integrated only the chapters 8, 11, 12 and 21 from "OCEJWCD Study Companion"?

I also recommend you to read Murach's Java Servlet and JSP (3rd) first to get the basic knowledge first.
This book's site is at https://www.murach.com/shop/murach-s-java-servlets-and-jsp-3rd-edition-detail

I had read that it is also a very good book, but it is not geared to passing that exam, but to present the arguments. I was looking for something oriented exam and apparently those two that I linked before provide excellent preparation.
I just wanted to know if it can be a good way to study all "Head First Servlets and JSP" and only the chapters 8, 11, 12 and 21 of "OCEJWCD Study Companion".

Hi,

I wonder why Kathy Sierra, Bert Bates and McGrawHill did not come together to write a book for OCEJWCD(1Z0-899). Those who studied their book for the Programmer certification would be familiar with their style and probably will be more comfortable.

I think that IF it is right to study all "Head First Servlets and JSP" and only the chapters 8, 11, 12 and 21 of "OCEJWCD Study Companion" you could have a good level of confidence in these arguments almost like a study done by a single book written by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates.

So, does it mean chapter 1-7, 9,10 , 22 of Charles Lyon's book should be skipped?

Yes, so I had read that some users advise doing.
