Hi Guys!

Thank you all for waiting! We've just posted a few sample exercises and mocks on the wickedlysmart website, free for you to download.

The mock is fairly small, about 470k,

The jsp stuff is bigger, about 2.7 meg.

We know it's big, but all of you HFer's know that HF stuff is very big and graphical

These samples should be helpful in your studies, AND they're right from the book,so you get a chance to see what this book is like.

Warning!! The "mock" sample contains about 4 questions from the book's master, final mock, so if you want to get the best benefit from the final mock, don't download the mock sample.

The JSP sample contains exercises AND a few mock questions from the chapter, and these questions ARE NOT on the final exam, so you won't spoil the final mock if you just download the scriptless JSP sample.

Disclaimer: These samples are not directly from the publisher's final, but we're pretty sure that they are exactly like what's in the book - translation - if you find an errata, please let us know, but we might have already found it!

We'll post a few more sample pages in a few days!

Here's the link:

Head First Servlet mocks

Have fun,

Bert and Kathy

p.s. we think Amazon will be shipping 8/25 - hats off to O'Reilly for rushing this book to press - it was late because we just had to make it bigger, and bigger...

Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!

Hi Bert & Kathy

Thank you very much for the wonderful mock exam . I think most of the ranchers will be happy after a long waiting.

Keep waiting to get the book from the stores soon.

Seems that some of the HF Java exercises are back that were missing from HF EJB - good stuff!

I thought the probabilty of HF SCMAD & JWS were pretty low on their priority...

SCJP 1.4 * SCWCD 1.4 * SCBCD 1.3 * SCJA 1.0 * TOGAF 8

They were mentioned in another thread as being low priority. Ive always fancied being Sun Certified MAD though.

Thanks for the update and preview Bert and I'm hoping to see the book shipped on 8/25. Like many others, I actually pre-ordered, and have watched my Amazon date keep sliding around . Still, I used the HF Java text, so I know that this is worth the wait.

Speaking of the website ( what gives? The books are great! But... the site is lacking. I thought I read in another thread that the site itself would be getting an update sometime this year. Any dates on that? Any mention of what content will be included on the revamp?

I thought I saw a link to the JSP pdf a few days ago. Did Bert take the link off already ?

Hi Bert & Kathy,

In the SCJP 1.4 book, you've a summary for each chapter. So was wondering if in HFS, you're also having a summary for each chapter too.

The summary in the SCJP book was very useful especially in quick revision.
I agree. Here's the link:
