Hi,

I just passed the SCWCD on the first try with 65% .
I found it a really hard exam and I do admire the people who pass with high scores.

If you want to pass with a higher score than I did, you probably should put a LOT MORE TIME in it than I did. I read HFSJ about half a year ago for the first time. After that I absolutely did not do anything but the regular programming. A week ago I studied the book for a second time. I scored about 50% on the final mock exam. I did some other mock exams and scored around 80% on those. So I figured I will probably just make it ... and did.
So the 20%+ rule seems to apply, but you should be careful though.

The actual exam was really tough. During the exam I was absolutely convinced I did not pass it. I got really a lot (like 10) drag and drop question. I also got two questions which contained spelling mistakes in the answers (e.g. Lisetner instead of Listener). I still don't know whether they do that on purpose.
I also found the questions on Design Patterns (on which I used to score really good) difficult and confusing.

Anyway good luck to all of you who still have to go,

cu around at the ranche,

It's nice to see somebody pointing out that this exam is not a piece of cake.
