Hi,
Passed the exam today but it wasn't easy. Got 83%, Thanks to this forum and all the guys here to help including Peter,Jyothi,Ricardo & all. To all the aspirants, what I would recommend is study hard with Specs, they are very important. Lot of questions were there on custom tags, design patterns. Practical situation questions were not easy to answer. Questions on distributed web applications were also not easy.
No mock provided questions that were even near to real exam questions. Read Marty Halls' more servlets & JSP. Review all your answers if time permits, I did the same and got 2 answers of mine reversible. Thank you all & keep writing.

Same question is being asked here at my workplace. One more advise to aspirants - The cost of certification has increased : party cost added to it...

Good work Sam! You're the first one I've heard say to study the specs hard. I appreciate the tip!
Carry On!

Sam - CONGRATS! You beat me by 3 questions!
I'll bet we had a very similar exam as I took mine last Thursday and scored at 77%. I too thought the exam was much harder than any mock I had taken.
Jeff: Definitely read the servlet/JSP specs. I read them once in their entirety and then I just kept them open when I was studying so I could search for various items and look up details. I probably ended up reading both of the specs maybe 3-4 times each.
I had 3 interviews this week and even though I didn't have my certificate yet I brought my exam results from last Thursday and I can't tell you how impressed the folks have been with my certifications. The interview I had today listed SCJP as a requirement. So, SCWCD was a definite bonus for them.
