HI all,
From where can I start preparation for JavaCertification???
I'm nervous reading lots of references...Can anyone suggest me a good starting point. I want to get rid of it within 3 months at the most. And I am sure java ranch will help me in doing that.
My background: java programmer and computer science student :-)

There is not a single source that covers all the topics in the exam. I started by reading the book: "core servlets and javaserver pages. Not bad book though it is for servlets 2.2 and jsp 1.1. From that you could go to the specifications.The explanations are quite good.
I also read Advanced JavaServer Pages which as its name says is incredible advanced.Too much beyond the exam's objectives but you really learn about tags, MVC, front controller, object facade and good programming in general.

I think Professional JSP is good. I am looking at it's examples.

Thanks for your ideas but I forgot to mention that I will have to go for Java Certified Programmer's exam. Probably I put message on the wrong forum. I'm sorry for that.
Thanks again.
