Hi Friends, I have taken the exam on July 8th 2002. I scored 86%. I would like to share my experience with all of you.
1.I had gone through all the notes of our friends like Miftah Kahan, Alx and Ken's notes. All are awesome and helpful in the exam. 2. The exam requires you to understand the fundamentals clearly and know when to apply them. Sometimes we know everything but if a situation is given and we are asked about what will you do then we are caught in a fix. So some practice is a must with servlets and jsp's. 3.All blue prints from Sun's site is sufficient but read between lines so that you can decide given a scenario which design pattern to use. 4.dtd and tld file is a must to remember the purpose of each element name and its purpose. 5.I got many questions from taglib, jsp directives and equivalent of the xml tags. 6. Questions are very straight forward, do not panic if the first few are difficult ones. As there are plenty of them which are easy ones. 7. Try to answer all the questions within the given time. Do not spend more time on any one of them. May be you can re-visit them later if you have time left over. 8. At last I advice that every candidate taking exam must have a good night sleep. Good Luck everyone. Pramila Thakur SCJP SCJD SCWCD
