My thanks to Hanumant Deshmukh and Jignesh Malavia, authors of the famous SCWCD Exam Study Kit! I started out reading parts of several other books in addition to theirs. The other two which I started to read were loaded with typos and inaccurate technical material so I finally settled on their book exclusively. After taking a graduate course on servlets and JSP at DePaul I read the book completely while also studying the API specs and javadocs. I then took the free Mocks from their CD and web-site as well as those here at javaranch and javaprepare. That was the winning program for me. Also, now that I have passed the exam I am definitely keeping their book as a desk reference.

Thanks again Hanumant and Jignesh for your high quality product. It helped me to hone my skills in the areas where I needed it!

Eric,
Thanks for the congrats. I am going to finish my MS in CS in November. So far I have a solid GPA and am in the Upsilon Pi Epsilon honor society in addition to the two Java certifications. I have taken OO Compiler Design, Advanced/Optimizing OO Compiler Design, as well as various theoretical topics such as Design and Analysis of Algorithms. I have also taken Patterns based OO Analysis and Design and the J2EE(servlet/JSP) courses. I am taking Document Interchange/XML programming now and will be taking the Concurrent Programming, Distributed Programming, and J2EE(EJB, JNDI and JMS) courses in the fall.
Hopefully, I will be able to find a challenging job when I complete the degree.
Good to see another other CTI guy in here!

Congratulations. It's an excellent score, so don't underestimate difficulty of SCWCD! If Sun allowed people to take SCWCD without SCJP then SCWCD would feel more difficult. By the time people take SCWCD, they probably have web component development experience, which is why I think some people say it is not difficult. But I think it takes either plenty of experience or lots of study to pass it (probably both) .
