I'm just finishing up my SCJD and I'll now be focussing on JSP. I know nothing about this yet so I'll need some books. I do want to become certified in this also. What books do people recommend, first to become familiar with the basics and then to form a solid foundation of the details, and lastly to get the certification?

I've got two suggestions for you. The first one is Profession JSP 2nd edition by Wrox press. Its a great overview of JSP's and Servlets and related topics/technologies. The second book is the Manning SCWCD Study Kit. Even if your not interested in taking the exam, I would highly recommend this book to give you great tips on how to successfully implement the Servlet API quickly.

I second Perry's suggestions. Professional JSP 2nd edition covers not only JSP, but servlets, architecture, XML, XSL, and a variety of topics. I also used the Manning SCWCD Exam Study Kit to get my SCWCD and found it to be very concise and relevant.
