If anyone has tried Professional SCWCD Certification guide (Wrox Publications), please do let me know if it is the sufficient resource (book) to prepare for SCWCD. Thanks.
How good is Hanumant's book over this wrox one?

Most people think Hanumant's book is the best one for SCWCD. I am also using this book plus Servlet 2.3 & JSP 1.2 specifications. I will write the exam next Tuesday, and I feel confident now.

I bought Wrox's book and the Sybex book. I never read the Sybex book. Wrox was enough. I have worked with Servlets/JSP a couple of years ago, so it was not the first time I've looked at the material. I originally planned to read both, but I had an interview coming up so I took it early and passed anyway. The SCWCD@Whiz, that comes with Wrox, was VERY helpful.

Read good reviews for both the books here. Wouldn't hurt to read the specs too, I guess.

Thanks guys. Since, Deshmukh book is not available in my area (Chandigarh). I'll go for Wrox and Specifications.
I agree. Here's the link:
