Hi y'all,

Had to take the SCWCD1.4 exam due to meet a deadline (didn't want to expire my voucher).
I had been away from working with J2EE for a while, so SCWCD1.3 would have been a better option for me because I have practical experience with it, but when I decided to sign up for 1.3 on Dec 17, I was told Sun had discontinued it on dec 15 - looked in the mirror and saw a jackass.

Back to the bookstore for the Head First book, 3 weeks of studying and passed it with 89%. (Hey ? why do they floor the results and not round them? 62/69 = 89.8% = 90% in my book - but 89% according to Sun - just lost my bragging rights.)

BTW thanks to Basham et al for another book that helps you stay awake :-)

Tip for future test takers :

1. Don't ignore any question in the chapter-end tests or the final mock exams - even if you see a question that is based on a topic not covered at
all in the book.

2. SCWCD1.4 is not more difficult that SCWCD1.3 in my opinion - thats a myth. You have less memorization to do - which is a good thing. There are more questions where you have to analyze code which means if you understand the subject you will be able to answer them. The new topics like EL and the SimpleTag implementations are supposed to make life easier and they are much easier to handle in real life and in the exam.

Have fun!
