Hi Kavitha,

Head first Servlets and JSPs is a good one and that can give you a very good taste of Servlets and JSPs.

Also, have the Servlet and JSP API documents.

And you will need a webserver like Tomcat, to try out what you read.

The "Apache Tomcat Bible" from Eaves, JOnes and Godfrey helped me out. It explains how to install Java, Tomcat, MySQL, Eclipse and it gives the source code of a whole web application built following the principles of the Model-View-Controller design pattern.
This was the book I had been looking for for months.
