I'll definitely be ready by the end of the month. I started studying last week. I'm on it full time 7 days a week.
So far I read Ken's Notes twice and both specs once. I will read them again one more time (all three). I have downloaded Tomcat 4.0 and played with it. I am a bit disapointed that their examples are basic and for the lack of documentation. But that still helps.
A while back I read Java Servlet Programming by Jason Hunter (O'Reilly) 1st edition. I just realized that it was published in October 98. So it's really outdated.
I also read JavaServer Pages by Hans Bergsten (O'Reilly). Really good book.
And last night I downloaded JWebPlus (trial - 15 questions). I like it a lot but they should have their questions proof read. I will most likely buy it next week after I have read (again) my books and specs.
All this is kinda of overwhelming since there is no one book that prepares for the exam. But afterall it's not rocket science and it's quite easy to grasp. But there is so much to remember.
By the way does anyone know why they chose to have a separate <servlet-mapping> instead of having the <url-pattern> inside the main <servlet>? That doesn't make sense to me.
I agree. Here's the link:
