Hi Ranchers,

I just completed the SCJP 5 exam and I am considering my next move. Could anyone compare the effort footprints between the SCJP and the SCWCD and their experiences with both exams?

Also, I felt the Kathy and Bates book was right on the money for the SCJP, is their Head First book as good for this certification? Are there any other books that you recommend instead?

Hi Chris,

This is a very common question for a SCWCD aspirant.

Head First Jsp and Servlets by Sierra, Bates and Basham is popular. You can also get David Bridgewater. For notes, Federic, mikalai's, Marc Peabody's...

check out SCWCD FAQ links for more details. There you can get several links to give mock exams too.

Best of luck!
