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 do not recommand SCWCD Exam Study Kit, because the dtds in the book are old. (servlet 2.3/jsp1.2) I bought it, and it was a real pain to correct everything. The overall layout of the book was not so bad though, but I think that it does not stress enough on important things.
Most people here recommand HFSJ (I don't own it personally). Read it twice and do the mock exam (which is said to be more difficult that the real exam)
Try to do as much mock exams as you can, and practice.
Hi Satou I've gone thorugh Deshmukh book last weekend at a bookshop and I did some of the review questions at the end of the each chpater. In one chapter (i dont remember the number). I found questions like what would be the ouput. a.blue blue red b.blue red red c.blue red blue etc
I remember it is something to do with include file. they have used this.jsp and that.jsp.i got all the questions wrong.I've not tried them yet.
can you please give me the explanation for that type of qustions??? I did not buy the book.
I'll have to check in the book, but I don't have it here. Anyway, I found the questions at the end of each chapter in this book pretty easy compared to the real test.
If you have a look at Manning's forum, you'll also realize that many people complained about the poor quality of the 2nd Edition. But no replies. The errata is not even updated, even if many people have listed loads of typos and severe mistakes.
So don't bother, and go for HFSJ

Apart from the mock exam on the head first book, are there other good mock exams on the internet or in other books ?
