Help with buying book decision

I already got the book 'JavaServer Pages' by
Hans Bergsten, 2nd edition in pdf from a friend.

Now I am getting serious to master JSP. I am
very tempted to order this book, 3rd edition
from amazon.

But I need to know is 3rd edition very different
2nd edition???

If not much difference, I will save my $ and buy
a servlet book instead.

If you wanna learn more in JSP just go for it, otherwise go for servlet, My Advice is get the servlet book.
All the Best !

I vote for :
Core Servlets & JSP (Marty Hall)
JSP & Servlets Cookbook (Oreilly)
TheServerSide has a free and great book about JSP and servlets, go and download it.
I agree. Here's the link:
