The Head First Servlets and JSP book seems to be a popular choice.

Whatever resource you choose, be sure to focus on modern JSP that emphasizes JSTL and EL and not discredited Java scriptlets.

If I will read The Head First Servlets and JSP book then will I able to learn JSTL and EL within the book or I have to find some other book.

Since the purpose of JSP is to write HTML pages you will also need a really good HTML and CSS reference - sorry, the one I use is out of print so I can't recommend a specific title.

Get a browser having good support for developer plug-ins so you can see what your JSP is really writing.

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
