I am planning to take the SCWCD 1.4 exam. I have done a little bit of development with servlets and JSP so I'm not a novice but also not an expert.

Please recommend some books I should study for J2EE 1.4 before I dive into a certification study book.

Also, please recommend some certification study books for 1.4 as well. Do Kathy and Bert have a book out for this certification yet? I loved their book for the java programmer 1.4 certification.

What i believe what you should get is, Servlets 2.4 and JSP 2.0 Specification documents.And are downloadable from
So I used SCWCD book by Hanumant Deshmukh to prepare for 1.4 and I concentrated on the Specification. Especially on Designing tag libraries and the like.
