Thanks for Javaranch.
Within 3 months I passed SCJP2 91%, SCWCD 89%, and now is waiting for my SCJD2 results ... next: SCJA within 6-12 months perhaps .. with hard work, motivation, and dedication.
Congrat for all who passed the exam too..

Congrats Alex,
You're outstanding friend.
May I know which books you use to prepare for SCWCD exams, because I plan to conduct this exam within 4 month later.
All the best for all also. Ependi your call...

Overall, Marcus Green references and javaranch references (and its mockup) helps much.
For SCJP, I use Sun Certified Programmer for Java 2 Study Guide (McGraw-Hill Professional Publishing; ISBN: 0072132086). The book got a lot of questions (which is 2x harder compared to the real exam, you should also check for the typo-error for this book, and there are 2-3 questions which got wrong answers).
I didn't buy book for SCWCD, I learned mostly from the J2EE spec, J2EE tutorial, javaranch tutorial, free JSP taglib tutorial, reading the WAR deployment descriptor and JSP taglib DTD.
For SCJD, I use Java RMI book from O'Reilly and design pattern from GOF. Java Design Pattern (downloadable pdf file) also help much
For SCJA, I use:
- Design pattern (GOF)
- Mastering EJB (Ed Roman)
- UML Distilled (2'nd edition) Martin Fowler
- EJB Design Pattern
- Sun Certified EA for J2EE (Mark Cade, Simon Roberts).
- Special Edition: Using Java 2 EE (QUE)

After waiting not even 3 weeks (fast!!), I got my SCJD result: 143/155 ...
Thanks everyone, and good luck for those still take the exams ..
General Considerations: Max=58 Deductions=0 Actual=58
Documentation: Max=20 Deductions=3 Actual=17
GUI: Max=24 Deductions=9 Actual=15
Server: Maximum=53 Deductions=0 Actual=53
Maximum Total=155 Deduction Total=12 Certification Score=143
I got most the deduction from GUI... I quite surprise for that since I have tried hard to design the GUI as useful as possible (FYI, I got Flight By Night SCJD project) ... Anyway, I am happy with the score.
