Most Popular
Head First Servlets and JSP: Passing the Sun Certified Web Component Developer Exam by Bryan Basham, Kathy Sierra, and Bert Bates is easily the most popular book on SCWCD certification. It uses cartoons and hand-drawn examples to explain concepts in an amusing and friendly manner. The book is useful for people with no prior background of servlets and JSPs. If you are a seasoned developer, you may find that the book takes too many pages to cover small concepts.

Best Servlets and JSP book
Murach's Java Servlets and JSP, 2nd Edition by Andrea Steelman, Joel Murach is an excellent introduction to Servlets and JSP. It is a good reference book also. However since it is not a certification book it will not contain mock exam questions and does not cover design patterns.

The Other Certification Book
Sun Certified Web Component Developer Study Guide (Exams 310-081 & 310-082) by David Bridgewater is a good book but has a few typos and some errors. There is a lot of good information in this book and some of the explanations and examples are good. The CD includes the book in pdf form and a free exam simulator.
