I am preparing for the SCWCD too and have the Professional JSP 2nd edition book. I find it a very informative and detailed book which definately is helping me to better understand JSP but from the exam point of view can anybody guide me as to which chapters are important and which can be skipped.

From an exam perspective, you can skip the chapters on Struts, performance, JDBC, and my chapter that talks about integrating other J2EE technologies with JSP.
But when you pass, these will all be useful in understanding more about JSP.
Good luck with the exam!

Hi Simon,
Thanks for the advice . I was also wondering if the chap on Wap programming & JSP and XML should be done/skipped?
