I'm completely new to JSP and servlets but I want to get my SCWCD. How long should I spend just learning servlets and JSP prior to actually studying for the exam? How much on servlets and how much on JSP?

I just got my SCWCD last week. I've been working with JSP's for 10 months now. I haven't been using custom tags at all during that time. I found the Manning Study Kit very beneficial and the mock exams included very similar in level of difficulty to the real exam. I read through the book once about three months ago, and then studied between 2-3 hours a day for 2.5 weeks. I passed the exam a week ago Friday with 72% (not great but my goal wasn't a super high score).
