Format: Paperback
This book is well organized according to the order of the exam objectives. If you have work experience about Servlet and JSP, you can read it and pass the SCWCD with ease. However, some questions of SCWCD exam are not listed in objectives, such as front controller, servlet code for security constraint. Therefore, the book can help you only pass SCWCD but can't help you get a high score. Other reference notes or books are needed if you want to get a high score.
Anyway, it is a good book for SCWCD.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Suddhasatwa Ghosh on January 15, 2003
Format: Paperback
This is a no-nonsense and "to the point" book, extremely focussed on the SCWCD exam. Little too cryptic - one has to literally read between the lines. The examples are more practical and "real-world" type, which gives the chapters a kind of "sense of completion" effect. The cheat-sheets at the end of every chapter helped to revise the important concepts.
However, this book expects a good amount of initial exposure to Servlets and JSP. This book is definitely not for a beginner. Once one has this initial exposure, he will find this book extremely useful for a quick exam preparation/review work. Preparation can be rapid since the chapters are very short and crisp and can be easily completed in one sitting. The presentation and flow is not very impressive; it follows the exam objectives too closely to have a stepwise logical flow. Also, it would have helped more to have more practice questions with every chapter and in the enclosed CD.

Although I had to buy this book in $s, I got complete satisfaction looking at the value addition to my preparation and the outcome of the exam for me.
The book provides very concise and classifed information required for the exam and the very nature of the book to "explain concept with the aid of examples" makes it a VERY useful resource. Also the Whiz mock test in the CD was of tremendous help.
Case study, the uqnique feature of the book also makes it a better book.
I am moving now towards my next Java certification and I wish Wrox had a book for the same.
Good luck to others

The beginning can't be better than this; Wrox has forayed into IT Certification domain with a smashing start.
As expected from the Author of one of the famous Servlets book (Professional Servlets 2.3), Professional SCWCD Certification is another rich quality publication. Structured according to the Exam Objectives, fueled with Informative Examples, accompanied with famous Mock Test Simulator, it is definitely a MUST Buy for SCWCD aspirants. Coupled with sample questions as per the exam pattern, each chapter in the book ensures that you understand the various concepts you are tested on.
The breadth and depth of topics covered along with a real life Case Study makes it valued book not just for the exam but also for the later reference.
Along with topics like Filters (which is not part of the present exam version), Authors might have considered including Struts as another important topic relevant to Serverside Java Web Component Development.
If your aim is to crack the exam than just passing it, this is the Best option in my belief.
Best wishes!!

This is a book that try hard to stick to the exam objectives.The plus point of the book is the set of questions asked at the back of each chapter also the accompanying CD contain very good mock exam.The book is only meant for those who are considerably good at the technology, and beginners will find it difficult to read between the lines.
I don't think one can rely solely on this book to score more than 90% in the exam not becuase it dosen't cover all the objectives/topics required but the depth is lacking.

BIG thanks to Wrox, authors, editors, reviewers for this much awaited publication. We've had a great moral boosting and huge impact on the score of our training class.
I appreciate the adequacy in breadth and the depth of this book and the case-study is a definite USP for this book. Questions in the book and with the CD are of high quality and very closely match the exam as reported by our training batch.
Good job done.

I used this book both as a crash-course introduction to the technology as well as to prepare for the certification exam. It is an excellent study guide and stays focused on the explicit exam objectives. Each topic is concisely explained, and the quizes and mock exam closely match the official test.

To the SCWCD Aspirants:
It is my eigth certification in Java-J2EE domain and probably the most enjoyable among all. Not just that I got promotion in my job but because it was a GREAT learning experience.
Certainly this book by Wrox played the most crucial role in my preparation. Although I tried other available books for this exam but I liked the style and approach of this book as it is not just useful for the exam but for later reference also. I was really happy to correctly answer some of the questions from the objectives which were not explicity stated by Sun but covered in the book and the accompanying mock exam.
My lack of practical experience was filled by the case study chapter of this book and also the questions made me think. I must say the explanations of the questions were really exaustive.
I HIGHLY recommend this book. If you have it; you WILL be successful. Having given so many exams I have understood the importance of "Enjoying the exam" and this book made me fulfill it.
Enjoy the exam and success is yours
Shalha
