I have recently started my study for SCWCD.
It looks like the very first step is to buy a book!! you need something to starts you off with.
I am using SCWCD exam study kit and it gives good
foundation as well in case you are not familiar with jsp/servlet.
hope it helps.

Hello Lakshmi !!
It is not such a big.Start with SCWCD guide from manning.It goes exactly as per the objectives.
-After doing each chapter do it thoroughly from API/SPECS(most important) with more stress on the methods which are there in Manning.
--U can do core Servlets also and More servlets (If time permits).
But Manning + API/Specs +lot of code practice should be enough.(use core,more for code practice)

I use the same book as Ajay and I passed SCWCD. This book really helps if you have some experiences with writing JSP/Servlets.

I think starting point should be to buy a Hanumath Deshmukh SCWCD book. I like this book for its well presented contents and simplicity. This will help you to stay focused on exam objectives.
Then read Servlets and JSP specs.
finally the design patterns at

Nice suggestions. You can also try out the resources at the links section of this forum. You may want to check out the sample chapters.. from some really good books.. in case you want a really depth study of some topics.
And don't underestimate the importance of writings lines of code..try program as much as possible.
Good luck
