I used the first edition of SCWCD Exam Study Kit: Java Web Component Developer Certification by Deshmukh, but it was a long time ago. I've heard that Head First SCWCD ( is easy to understand and more comprehensive compared to the first book I've mentioned.

Once you have the book, the best way to learn is to start coding servlets and JSPs. Install simple free web application server, like Tomcat ( and deploy your servlets and JSPs there to test them. Start from easy subjects and then go up to a more advanced subjects, such as Expression Language, Filter, JSLT, design patterns, etc.

Good luck!
