This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Yes, please check SCWCD links and faq!
HFSJ is a good book to start with. You can use Tomcat 5.5 or other app servers like JBoss, but Tomcat is easy to manage. Try not to depend on UI too much. If you use Eclipse or tool like that, make sure you create plain Class and not a Servlet, Filter or JSP directly. The reason is tools will create some code, helper class, do some imports, create web.xml etc which the exam expects you to have good knowledge of. Try to code all examples from the book, and answer all the questions at the end of each chapter.

Hello Abimaran, HFSJ pretty much covers everything.
In addition to that please go through the JSP/ Servlet/ JSTL specifications and API. (links in SCWCD links page).
For design patterns, please read Peabody design patterns (links in SCWCD links)
Frits Walerman notes and Mikalai Zaikin notes are good also
Finally try to do as much as mock exams. Enthuware is a very good tool. There are 8 mock exams and it is not very expensive and you can learn a lot
Coffee Cram final exam is good too. Marcus Green and some other mock exams are free. Please see all links in SCWCD links page
But basically you should read HFSJ cover to cover and try to do all the code samples in that.
