It's better than I expected!

I spent 5 weeks on it right after finishing SCJP 1.4

Here are what I have used for preparation:

book:
SCWCD Exam Study Kit
This book is good even for just learning servlets and JSP.
I personally like this book better than "core/more servlet JSP book"
I especially like its "exam quick prep", pretty good.

websites:
www.j2eecertificate.com
www.jiris.com
www.podar.net/scwcd/
www.jdiscuss.com
www.javaranch.com/carl/scwcd/scwcd_mock_logo.jsp
www.geocities.com/rahmanjava/index.html

simulator:
Free trial JWebPlus
Whizlab scwcd simulator


SCBCD and weblogic are next.

cheers~

Hi Huang,

Is experiennce required in Servlets and JSP to clear in a short span of less than 2 months. Did you have exprerience before in Servlets and JSP. You achieved it in a short frame. Congrats on your success.

Good luck for future,

Hi Ravi,

I did have a little experience in Servlets, but almost no
experience in JSP. I think it's very likely that you can
pass the exam with a good score and also in a short period
of time. 2 months is enough if you spend 2-3 hrs everyday
preparing for it.

Roughly speaking, exams questions can be divided into 2
categories. One requires you to memorize API and ruls,
the other one requires you to know how things really work.

For the second category, what I did is to actually write
and run some sample codes to see how does it work.
Whenever I have a doubt of the behavior of Servlets/JSP,
I will just write some codes to test it.

Hope this will help.

Good luck.

That book is for CX-310-080, not CX-310-081, right? It still might be useful, but you have to keep an eye on objectives that are new in CX-310-081.

Hi Sekhar,

The exam will tell you the number of correct answer(s) you have
to choose.

Hi Conan,

Thanks for your advice.

I am aware of the differences between 080 & 081, but I had no choice
back then. I was waiting for the head first book on Servlets/JSP but
couldn't wait no more, therefore I took 080 first.

As soon as I receive the book, I shall start learning new stuffs.

Right now, EJB has already kept me busy.
