First of all, thanks a lot to this forum for providing all the required information at one place.
I was interested in taking advantage of Java20 discount, but I knew about this discount little late, around November. So I have only 30-40 days left for preparation.

My Preparation:

1. Servlet 3.0 specification (Multiple times)
2. Head First Servlets and JSP
3. Enthuware mock exams.

Enthuware test exams really boosted my preparation level, spending 20$ is really worth buying enthuware tests. In the first 2 to 3 mock tests I was hardly getting 70-75%. Later realized that I need to spend extra time reading the servlet spec multiple times with in depth knowledge regarding each topic.

Congratulations.

I've never tried this test, but have done the Java Programmer, Java Developer, EJB, and Architect exams. That's a good score. I've done web programming in the past, so I've always been a bit curious about this exam. I used Enthuware for the EJB exam. It helped.

Did you like the Head-First approach? I had one of those for EJBs, but it kind of got on my nerves. Perhaps it is not for everybody.

Hi Foster,
I love head first approach... But only problem with head first servlets & jsp was it's not meant for servlet 3.0 specification.I have used head first mainly for JSP, JSTL and custom tags.
Anyway Servlet 3.0 spec pdf is pretty good in explaining all the topics clearly.
