I am studying in "Sams teach yourself JavaServer Pages 2.0 in 24 hours".. I don't feel I am learning much from this book, so my question was, does anybody have any recommended reading for learning JSP?

Hi Jeremy,
my recommendation is:

Head First - "Servlets & JSP" by Bryan Basham, Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates
if you are completely new in JSP and JSTL,

and you can have beside this
Manning - "JSTL in Action - 2003" and "advanced JavaServer Pages" from Sun, by David M. Geary, to see realy use of it all, and if you dont understand something, just go back on Head First - "Servlets & JSP" to refresh your self

my suggestion is first you download the jsp2.1 specification then learn its purpose with examples.. then only you can get good knowledge.

The best place to look for book reviews is the JavaRanch Bunk House.
