What are some good books to buy, to get prepared for this certification? Also, could anybody give me an estimate on how long it would take to prepare for this certification?
Replays are greatly appreciated.

You may also take a look at Javaprepare's SCWD FAQ and SCWD books section, for another viewpoint.

This book is all you need. Wonderfully organized with lots of practice questions and 3 whole practice tests. Good luck!

SCWCD Exam Study Kit
by Hanumant Deshmukh, Jigneh Malavia

The book is laid out in a logical straightforward fashion -- matching up exam objectives with Servlet/JSP topics and even covers a couple things that aren't (yet) on the exam, like Filters. It's written in a very easy-to-read, conversational tone and is an excellent resource for someone who's familiar with Java but not with Servlets and JSPs or even for someone familiar with them, but needs to brush up on some of the details for the exam. The bundled CD that comes with the book is chock full of excellent resources (3 JwebPlus mock exams, Tomcat 4, the relevant JSP and Servlet specs, and an electronic copy of the book). The quizlets and notes intermixed within each chapter help you to confirm that you understood what you just read -- and also explain a couple "gotchas". The author's website contains an excellent little forum where you can get hold of the author's to ask questions or report errors in the book. I'll definitely use this book as a resource even after the exam. (Jessica Sant - Bartender, August 2002)
