hi all,

this is where i m @ present -

--have Tomcat 5.x installed and running on my PC

--have downloaded the spces for srvelet and jstl api (all pdf files)

--have purchased the Marty Hall and Larry Borwn book and have read the first chapter from it !

--in the local market i saw these books
1. David Bridge water
2. K&B HSFJ
3. Hanumant Deshmukh & Dinesh Malvia

What i was plannig - TO READ THE "Mart Hall & Larry Brown's"
AND GET TO A "NOVICE" level... AND THEN
USE ANY 1 of the ABOVE 3 CERTIFICATION BOOKS

BUT what i want to ask is -

"WITH ZERO KNOWLEDGE ON WCD TOPICS, WILL IT BE FINE IF I DIRECTLY
TAKE THE K&b BOOK IN HAND....STUDY IT 'RELIGIOUSY' 3-4 TIMES AND
THEN GIVE THE EXAM ??? "

"WIL DIRECTLY STUDYING THE K&b BOOK MAKE ME CONVERSANT WITH THE WCD
TOPICS AND CONFIDENT ENOUGH FOR THE EXAM ? ? "

i want to strike a balnce between "knowing the WCD topics" and
"getting gerd up for the exam". In other words, i want to know the
TECHNOLOGY as well as do the CRAMMING for the exam !!!

please help me
thanks in advance !!

I believe this should work. Between each reading, I recommend finding online tutorials on the more difficult topics to help you understand them better.

hi
I am considering the Head first book. Does it take care of the new 310-081 exam?
Thanks for your reply.

Hi Niranjan,
My position is similiar to yours? Did you get to find out if HFSJ helps someone entirely new to Servelets and JSP? I currently have Marty Hall, but Iam confused since Iam new to not only Servlets and JSP but also to web applications.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
