Format: Paperback
It's been a while since I've done any web development so beeing assigned to a new project meant I had to get up to speed quickly. I have to admit I was a little unsure about purchasing as I'd heard from some that the Head First style was too informal and quirky to be taken seriously as a technical book for professionals. I decided to give it the benefit of the doubt and I was not disapointed! Despite the informal jokey style, the content of the book is 100% comprehensive, relevant and practical. The book is large because each chunk of information is broken up and presented with diagrams, pictures, margin notes and exercises. It was so easy to just sit and read, and I never found myself having to read sections over and over to make the material stick in memory. They say their style is based on the results of cognitive research and learning theory and I'd say its with great success. If you're looking for a reference book, this is not for you. However if you are looking to learn quickly and effectively, then buy it!

Hi I am a programmer who has been looking at jsp's and servlets for years but this book put it all together for me. I felt I had a great knowledge of the subject matter after reading it. If you are a developer in this area I would highly recommend it. I have read other head first books but did not get as much out of them I though this one was exceptional.

I bought this book to learn about web development and absolutely love it. I really love how each page is so self-sufficient and every time you move to another page, you are confident that you have actually learned something from the previous page. It's also wonderful to feel that once you study one more page, you'll know yet another topic. Highly recommended!

This book is great, with the easy to read style of Head First's books, but it's not so relevant now with JSF and JavaEE7. It doesn't include any mention to those API's, as it could be expected due to its release date.

If you need to learn to use JSP ans Servlets, this is a very good book for starters, but if you are not tied to that old technology you should search for a book with up-to-date contents as the mentioned JSF and JavaEE6 greatly simplify development.
