Hi all,
Today i sat the exam and had a passing score of 81%. I must say i found a lot of the questions to be quite missleading and one word was that was used is just not in my vocabulary i am happy with my end result considering i have had no real experience with Jsp and servlet.

I used the Great book HFSJ as my main course of study which i think does a great job of getting you ready for the exam which i read once, and then a second time to make things stick, and of course here at the ranch.

Thanks to the authors of HFSJ for writing a book that is easy reading and in a way that people can understand even if like me not a young fella :-( and never even new what a computer was untill i purchased one for my daughter while she was studying for her A level exams three years ago.

The Head first series as helped me a great deal in achieving what i have done
Thank you all...

Thanks all,
Stien I only read parts that i was referred to when i got one the end of chapter questions wrong from the HFSJ book, just to reinforce what i had got wrong, i found that trying to read them on a whole just bored me to tears.
