SCWCD6 exam is different from SCWCD 5 exam. the SCWCD 5 exam is based on servlet spec 2.4 whereas the new exam is based on servlet 3.0 specs. there have been addition of new objectives to SCWCD 6 exam like asynchronous servlets, annotations, security , programmatically adding servlets, filters etc. head first servlet and jsp 2nd edition book is for old exam. it does not target new exam. you have still a weeks's time left. i recommend you to read servlet 3.0 specs focussing on asynchronous proocessing, security and annotatinos and pluggability chapters. if however you are giving scwcd 5 exam then you are fine with just hfsj.

for the complete list of objectives you can check official oracle site.
all the best

What Gurpreet said is absolutely right. Include web fragments (new changes in web.xml) too in the new exam objectives.
