Seeing as though the exam isn't available yet, I would think there aren't any books that specifically focus on it yet. I would go to sun's site and go over the objectives. That's probably your best bet.

well its true but i thought from the objective people can extract the books required ,since i am new to it
i was thinking core servlet and jsp by Martin
Java serverlet by ORilly
i dunno if i might need another book

Looks to me like any of the Servlet & JSP books will cover the subjects. (like mine - hint hint) It will be interesting to find out what the pioneers report.

Looks like any good Servlet JSP book would be a good place to start. I didn't like the first O'Reilly Servlet book much but I did like Bills JSP book. It has an O'Reillyish flavor in that it is compact and relevent.
