Really thnkx for the suggestions. Somebody suggested me SCBCD but I ll go for SCWCD first. Kindly tell me which books to refer for this SCWCD. And also as I told you, I want to persue my carrier in this, so suggest me not only in terms of exam point of view, also in terms of working.

Thanks once again for ur suggestions.

As far as SCWCD is concerned u can follow Head First Servlets and JSPs. it is one of the best books available for this certification.

I dont remember the author but Prof.JSP by WROX publishers is another good book which u can take as a reference .

Head First Servlets and JSP is THE best book for the SCWCD exam. As a secondary book to reinforce the concepts of HFS&JSP I'd recommend SCWCD Study Kit by Manning publishing. I found this to be simple reading and straight to the point. I read it after the head first book, and it solidified the concepts and at the very least gave me some more practice questions to work with. With this combo I was able to score well above passing on the exam (85% i believe it was).

SCJP 1.4, SCWCD J2EE 1.4, SCJD J2SE 1.5, SCBCD J2EE 1.3, SCDJWS (In Progress)
