Hi ranchers,
I took the exam yesterday and passed with 89%. Thanks to all the posts on this forum, it helped me a lot in preparing the right way. It was a serious 1 month's preperation. I religiously followed HFSJ approach initially but after taking few mock exams felt that its not suifficient in all the topics. So read spec for Servlets, few topics of JSP spec and JSTL. But ofcourse if you've read HFSJ, the spec will be like icing on the cake.
The questions were not that easy especially on Design Patterns, EL, Web Container Model. So requires good preperation.
All the best for to every1 whos going to take the exam.

two points of business...

1) You have been asked in this AND this thread to change your name to meet our naming policy. If you won't comply, we'll have to lock your account. Please go
here and change your name.

2) While we're all glad you passed, this is not the correct forum to post your results. i'm moving it to the
Certification Results forum.

Thanks Fred, Mani, Rizwan and vishnu. Actually I registered in javaranch long time back while writing SCJP and lost touch with this forum due to commitments on my personal/professional front. There was almost a gap of 2 years. So I had to register again when i decided to write SCWCD. Now I'm hoping to write SCBCD with this same registration
Hi mani kanth, if you have HFSJ that is enough to pass the exam but if u're aspiring for high scores then reading spec is a must. For JSTL i recommend you to read spec, provided you've enough time. Also, i used to usually prepare for long hours (around 6 to 8 hrs) during weekends as my work keeps me very busy during weekdays.
-Thanks
