Well, my score was only 76%. The exam was more difficult than I anticipated. However, the only resources that I used to study were:
Sun's exam Objectives
The Servlet 2.3 Specifications
The Servlet 2.3 API
The JSP 1.2 Specifications
The JSP 1.2 API
I also used my prior experience with Servlets and JSP.
I hope this helps.

Hello James,
Congratulations !!
By the way you mentioned that you referred the API for servlet
2.3 and jsp1.2 in addition to the specs. Is the API out already?
I thought only the specs were out.Kindly clarify.
thanks,
Manjunath

You can download the Servlet 2.3 Javadoc from: http://java.sun.com/products/servlet/download.html
You can download the JSP 1.2 Javadoc from: http://java.sun.com/products/jsp/download.html
They are not final versions, but they are proposed final drafts.

Tomcat 4.0 (currently beta 6 or 7 I think) implements the new APIs and seems to work ok. Beta 6 is what I have been using to work with SOAP. It comes with complete Javadocs for the classes so is an excellent study aid.

Hello James,
Thanks for the links!!. I overlooked the doc's when
i was downloading the specs.
So are you advocating that reading the specs and going through
the javadocs is sufficient for the exam?
Kindly justify,
regards and thanks,

Congrats James !!
Is there any Q's about the JSP API (javax.servlet.jsp & javax.servlet.jsp.tagext) like the Servlet ?? like "what is the interface and method for ..."
Thanks in advance

Well, I guess it depends on how you learn. All of the information needed to pass the exam is covered in the Specs and the APIs. However, if you actually want to learn the information and be able to apply it then developing sample Servlets and JSPs would be helpful.
As far as the JSP API, I do not recall any questions about the interfaces/classes directly. You do need to know the return values for the doStartTag, doAfterBody, and doEndTag methods.
