The book is laid out in a logical straightforward fashion -- matching up exam objectives with Servlet/JSP topics and even covers a couple things that aren't (yet) on the exam, like Filters. It's written in a very easy-to-read, conversational tone and is an excellent resource for someone who's familiar with Java but not with Servlets and JSPs or even for someone familiar with them, but needs to brush up on some of the details for the exam. The bundled CD that comes with the book is chock full of excellent resources (3 JwebPlus mock exams, Tomcat 4, the relevant JSP and Servlet specs, and an electronic copy of the book). The quizlets and notes intermixed within each chapter help you to confirm that you understood what you just read -- and also explain a couple �gotchas�. The author's website contains an excellent little forum where you can get hold of the author's to ask questions or report errors in the book. I'll definitely use this book as a resource even after the exam. (Jessica Sant - Bartender, August 2002)

Thx a lot for this review.
I wanted to know if anybody has read the book titled :"Java 2 Web Developer Certification Study Guide " from Natalie Levi and Philip Heller.
www.amazone.com.
I want to buy one of those two but don't know which one to select. I already bought the book from marty Hall "JSP and servlets"
Thx in advance for your advice.
I just want to add that your review are very usefull, don't stop it!

I saw this book in our library. Now when I am ready to read the book, but it has gone. I went to a well known book store today. touched the book and came back. While waiting for the gone book, I hope this book will help me to pass the exam.

I used this book to prepare for the SCWCD exam and frankly the test was a breeze. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Be careful that this review is for the first edition, for the old exam.
The 2nd Edition is for SCWCD 1.4. It's easy to recognize, there's no CD bundled with it. If JavaRanch could update the review, because the 2nd edition does not deserve 9 horseshoes.
