Beginner writer or Beginner's JSP Guide
Read this book last weekend. Should have watched Simpsons reruns instead. Found the book to be tedious. Didn't really step me through any sort of learning process....

Not for beginners!

Beginners beware ...
I'm a beginner at JSP, but with substantial experience in ASP, JavaScript, Web Development, databases, and some experience writing Java applets. I couldn't get anywhere with this book. Apparently, the assumption is that readers are complete experts in Java, who don't need any terms defined, or procedures outlined in any detail, who are transitioning to JSP. Fine for them. But the word "beginner" doesn't really say it all. After a week beating my head against a wall with this book, I went out and spent another $100 on books that really are for beginners. Maybe I'll find it useful in a few months, when I'm no longer a "beginner".

Great JSP Book for Beginners and Novices
This is an excellent book. I highly recommend it for anyone starting out in JSP and for those who want a great refresher. This book is well organized and flows well from start to finish.

I especially like chapter 6 which discusses Tag Libraries.

There are plenty of code samples and as an added benefit, part II is a complete real world sample.

I think all JSP development teams should have this book nearby.

Highly recommended.
