I have SCWCD Exam Study Kit 2nd ed., but I heard many people say this book isn't good compare to HFSJ and even it's previous ed. (SCWCD Exam Study Kit).
I want to know what chapters are not good (I should not follow/rely on), and what are good (I can follow/rely on).

What resources/materials I can fulfill knowledge to pass SCWCD 1.4 with high score (90%+)?

Anybody who know please tell me, thank you.

i have seen both the books.

if you are new to the subject, better use both the books. But definetely study both of them.

EL and custom tags is covered much better in HSFJ

Hi,

I have both HFSJ & SCWCD exam study kit with me.

HFSJ is easier to read and understand, but takes more time to read. Study Kit is a bit harder to study, especially, if you are reading it for the first time.

If you are new to Servlets & JSP, then please read HFSJ first to understand the concepts clearly. Then you read Study Kit. Especially, Custom Tags & EL are a bit hard to understand when reading Study Kit, compared to HFSJ.

I think, we should read both of these books. Some of the points that are missed while reading HFSJ will be covered while reading Study Kit. Also, you may encounter some new points, when reading a second book.

Thanks,
Chandra

Thank you.

From your reply, I should study EL and custom tag more from other materials, but for the other topics I can follow SCWCD Exam Study Kit 2nd ed.
Right or not?

Hi,

I feel that "Exam Study Kit" is more towards preparing for the exam, than to use it as a guide to study for the first time, to understand the basic concepts. I think, it's good to have some basic knowledge before reading it, even for other items other than EL & custom tags.

Thanks,
Chandra
