Congrats on passing the SCJP!
I am preparing for the SCWCD exam. In my opinion the HFSJ book has a weakness in that they try to make everything so funny that it takes attention away from the important material. Some of the chapters are also organized in such a way that understanding the material is difficult. Eg Chapter 9 deals with scriptles JSPs. They explain about actions to be performed on JavaBeans, but there is no proper explanation about what JavaBeans are and how to use them.
These frustrations made me take up "Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages" by Marty Hall et al. It is an excellent book and complements the HFSJ by making very clear and concise explanations. Eg the use of SingleThreadModel was explained in a crystal clear way in Hall's book as compared to HFSJ. HFSJ just made me confused.
"Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages" volume I is available for free download. See link here on Javaranch.
"Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages" is probably not tailor made for the exam as HFSJ. That might explain the more clear and concise treatment of subjects.
Finally the HFSJ in paperback just disintegrates with time. The pages just start falling out.

I am preparing for SCWCD (310-082). I have finished Head First Series (By K & B).
Being curious I have started looking at other book (SCWCD - David Bridgewater, dreamtech publications).
But I was bit confused, not able to answer many of the questions in this book. As it demands to memorize,
Header Types, length and so on and look like both the books are with quite different goals.
Could you pl suggest me what is that exact material to refer. Please respond ASAP,
as my exam date is close.
