I've passed it last monday ..
I studied the following:
- Head First Servlets & JSP
- Mikalai Zaikin notes
- Frederic Esnault notes
- Enthuware's JWeb+ mocks
It needed about 3 months to prepare for the exam but I had very few time because of my job.
I like the HFS book, it a very nice way to teach, but personally I prefer a more synthetic kind of book. Anyway it was very effective .. so many thanks to the authors.
MZ notes are very useful .. I think if you read them you can avoid to read all the specs. Thank you a lot (again ;-) I've passed also the SCBCD with your notes)
FE notes are excellent .. they are also very useful for a revision on the last day before the exam. I recommend them. Thank you very much
The Enthuware's mocks have been fundamental to understand some aspects I didn't understand at the beginning. Thanks to Enthuware team too (results of the mocks 72%, 64%, 78%, 86%, 84%, 83%, 81%, 78%)
I'm just sorry because I can't partecipate a lot to the forums and I'm just a "passive user" but I hope to help someone with my study experience.
Thanks everybody and good luck for your exams
