It wasn't quite easy as people talked. I think I am lucky to have serveral guesses correct!

Congratulations Yuan, can you share some experience with us? I just finished the servlet part of the book, but I think it's all about memory, knowing wich methods are in interface X, deployment descriptor, etc.
So I think is a must to have all this memorized. I hate that...

Wow, that's great. I'm thinking of taking that test next. Any book recommendations?

Based on my research here and other forums the SCWCD exam Study Kit, by Deshmukh and Malavia is the one that everyone recommends. The exam will be updated next year. There's also a Head First SCWCD book, if you want to wait for it. I think it's covering the new SCWCD topics.

I only used the book by Deshmukh and Malavia. It covers about 96% of the questions you might see in the real example. I did all the free mock exams I can find on the web. My suggestion would be trying to finish the book fast, get the whole idea, then take some time to review your weak points(memorize if you can code some Servlet and JSP). Then do some comparison of the key points. Like the difference between <init-param> and <context-param>, ServletConfig and GenericServlet and ServletContext, so on. The correct understanding of each class is important. Read the bean, tag and web.xml examples several times will also help. Wish you all good luck.
