Hi all,
Just passed exam with 96% (59/61). Got Flow Control 77%, and the rest is all 100%. Share my experience here:
I have 2 years java programming experince. I purchased Khalid's book 1 year ago but gave up after 1 week. This year January, started to think about certification again. Get on javaranch and found out there is a new book from Kathy & Bert. Got it on Jan 14, that day should be the official starting date for my preparation.
Bought Jwhiz 1.4 and JQ plus 1.4. Study about 1-2 hours everyday after work, weekend is full day study(5-6 hr).
When I started get some mock exams score around 85, I scheduled exam one month later(March 17).
Kathy & Bert 's book covers all the topics, and they make the study so much fun! much read!
JWhiz and JQPlus are good mock exam simulators. Both of them are harder than real exam.
Here are my mock exam score:
JWhiz's average score is 82(lowest 70,highest 90), JQPlus's average score is 83(lowest 73, highest 90). K&B two mock exam : 88, 85. Marcus:90(2),86(1). Did some of the Dan's comprehesive exam and the average score is 72.
Speical thanks to K&B, Dan, Marcus, and all other ranchers!
I read some days ago, Kathy was talking about the new book for SCWCD but I couldn't find it. I remembered she said the book will come out after summer, I couldn't remember the exactly, but it seems like there will be some changes to SCWCD exam? Maybe I am wrong. Shall I go for WCD right now?
Good Luck to all!
