Hello friends

Please help me.. I am confused as to which book should I refer for SCWCD 1.4 ?

I had seen some of the reviews where they have recommended Head First by Kathy Sierra . But when I actually saw the book I was not much convinced about the layout of the book. May be i am Wrong but layout of the book gives the first impression about that book . I have not gone through the contents of that book. I want to be preety sure about this book before I purchase it. Please try to understand me..

Currently I am using SCWCD by Hanumant Deshmukh. But I feel that I should refer for some other books too as I am not able to gain confidence.

I am desperatly waiting for your suggestions !!
Please help me to make a final decision regarding the book to refer.

Waiting for your reply

Kathy and Bert's Head First Servlets and JSPs is definitely an useful book for preparing SCWCD 1.4. They try to use some "comics" to illustrate concepts that are difficult to be understood by pure text. I used their HF EJB to crack SCBCD with a good score, and thus, I highly recommend this book to you.
