Hi Ranchers,

I'm currently preparing for SCWCD 1.4 exam. I bought the Head First JSP and Sevlet book. It's indeed a very good book, I like it . My question is that is that book alone enough for me to pass the exam? I mean I will try to fully understand that book and do some practice and mock exams.

I read quite a lot of books for my SCJP, but only few books were quite useful to me. That's why I think reading too many books don't really help much, but fully understanding the objectives of the exams is more important, well of course by getting a very good book. What do you guys think?

Thanks in advance.

For understanding the concepts and for getting the types of the questions will be asked in exam, HF is good. You have to take mock exam, read materials avaiable on net and go thorugh wrox publication book ("server programming").

I would suggest you purchase them commercial mocks. Have a look at Enthuware and whizlabs (have not tried this one but the demo questions were good).

SCJP 6 articles - SCJP 5/6 mock exams - More SCJP Mocks
