I studied from K&B Head First Servlets and JSP and it is really good. Main thing is you dont get bored reading the book :-)

I also used Head First Servlets & JSP (First Edition, though). It was fun to read, and did an excellent job of covering what you need to learn for the exam.

You can take the upgrade (084) if you already have passed an old version of SCWCD. If you don't, you have no choice but to take the 083. In both case, the 2nd edition of HFSJ will do.

Many of my students find Head First Servlets and JSPs to be enough, especially if they have a strong background in Java.

Some mock exams never hurt, either.
