Hi all,

I know everybody is referring to Head First Servlets and JSPs for preparing for this exam.Can you let me know if there are any other books I need to refer from the exam point of view?Also it would be helpful if you could let me know I could get the soft copy of those books.
Thanks in advance

Regards,
Janu

Hi Ranchers,
A lot has already been said about the SCWCD 5 exam. I personally believe that every serious exam aspirant doesn't settle for just one book. I'm presently referring the following books:

HFSJSP by Bryan Basham
Good: simple to read and follow.
Bad: lacks in implementations and examples.

SCWCD 5 Exam Guide by Kunal Jaggi
Good: excellent subject knowledge, friendly language.
Bad: many examples to follow but they�re short.

Hope this will help in hitting the right books!

I strongly disagree with the Bad: lacks in implementations and examples. that you have given for HFSJ.

There's none you need to refer to in the first place, but mine's here if you want to take a look... just released a new SCWCD 5 version in India (it's cheaper than HFSJ too!). There are links to the reviews on the SCWCD 5 Links page, and at Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk so you can decide. Good luck with whatever you choose
