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. [ December 25, 2005: Message edited by: Umakanth Godavarthy ]
Hi Fred, Apologies that I didn't notice the naming policy and that there is a seperate forum for posting results. Thanks for reminding me. Actually i was bit busy in preparing for the last week so didn't notice that. :roll:
congracts umakanth am planning to give in next week am little scared too want to say fact am concentrating on only passing the exam . you told one month you prepared how many hours you studied and do you have experiance on web technology before itself..
tell me about jstl and custom tags am really worried about these topics..
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
