Day 2

I don’t anticipate that I’ll knock out a chapter a day studying for the SCWCD exam, but the first two chapters of Head First Servlets & JSP have been good, solid, review of stuff I know pretty well.

I found myself breezing through the code magnet puzzle writing a simple servlet and associated web.xml.

The puzzles and sidebars through out the chapter (and even the graphics) have been really good cues for reinforcing the material and make the book fun to read. I find myself scribbling a note or a “supplemental” bad joke in the margins. All part of meta-cognition.

Okay, I’m starting to sound like a HF fan-boy…but have you seen this series? I’m genuinely impressed.
