Unanimously "the" best material to really learn JSP & Servlets would be the Head First Servlets & JSP. Not even the Servlets & JSP specs, the Head First is the best!

Would the Headfirst Servlets book not be a little outdated?

Yes and No.

Yes -- due to the fact, if I am not wrong, HFSJ book is not upto date to cover Java EE 6/7.
No -- because the core concepts behind Servlets and JSP were never changed rather few additions are introduced in the later versions.

So, in my humble opinion it would still be the best bet!

Yeah I agree, decided to purchase the book there as my servlet knowledge is embarrassingly poor.

Thanks for the reply
