If you have HFSJ, then the biggest part is done
You should definitely read the Servlet specs carefully, and at least have a look at JSTL and JSP specs (and keep them handy for specific questions you mught have).

I made a servlet spec summary available on my website if you wish.

Good luck for the SCWCD exam !

Hi Frederic,

Thank you .I will make a point to go through the spec summary from your web site.

can you tell me some tips that should be kept in mind for preparation? I have to tell you that I have no work experience regarding the subject.Does this affect my preparation for exam.?

Since most of the J2EE API is made up of interfaces. You need to download a servlet container like tomcat 5.5 and install it. Tomcat contains the jar files with the concrete classes to compile and run examples.
I agree. Here's the link:
