This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I'm preparing the SCWCD 1.4 exam and i'm studying on Manning's Exam Study kit (secone edition). I've red that the book is not a very good study guide because many subjects are missed or explained not deeply. Does anyone know this book and does someone tell me if fulfilling with the jsp specification can be enough to pass the exam? I've a good experience in web developing (more on servlets but a little less on jsp)
I would not rely on that book as the only source for certification preparation. The original edition was a very good source for the old SCWCD 1.3 certification. Unfortunately the second edition's "upgrade" to SCWCD 1.4 is somewhat incomplete as some information still reflects Servlet 2.3/JSP 1.2 rather than the required Servlet 2.4/JSP 2.0. See here.
