Finally got the time to take this test...I found it different from SCJP in a couple of ways.
  • The test requires much more memorization. Knowing class names and signatures is important.
  • Knowing the web-app xml dtd is very important.
  • Less emphasis seems to be placed on programming concepts.
  • Several questions were answered by other questions on the test. Cross-referencing the questions helped ensure several correct responses.


  • IMHO - this was much easier than SCJP 1.4. The SCWD Exam Study Kit provided more than enough content needed to pass. The included exams were also very similar.
    One area of concentration that I was suprised by was listeners. Several tricky questions were you had to know methods and how the listeners were configured (deployment discriptor vs. implemented in a class).
    Once again thanks to all in the SCWCD forum - I did a lot of lurking...
    Cheers
