Hi Ranchers
Yesterday i cleared SCDJWS with 86%

So here is my Preparation

Previous experience - i have done one project using web services but don't know much about it ( because most code was IDE generated ).

I used RMH (Richad monson Haefal j2ee web services book) as main study resource( Not as reference book).

I read it 3 times ( End to end reading, including appendices) + 1 times ( revise it)
initially i found it RMH boring and my speed was slow and didn't understanding the many things, This was the hardest part. only later i developed interest.

By this time my whole book was already painted witn marker and pencil marks.

After first three times going through RMH + Chapter 3 Blueprint + MZ Security portion
then i attempted XYZWS mock exam to check my preparation got 69%.in first attempt. After that i improved a lot.
also attempted Trial version of Wizlab
Then i read RMH once more(many topic twice) + Chapter 5,8 Blueprint + MZ (JAXB, JAXP, design and architecture Portion) + XYZWS (JAXB)

For Security MZ notes is best resource this topic isn't covered anywhere.
i got 100% in that portion

simulaneously i was attempting XYZWS Questions got 72%, 84%, 85 % 89%, 92%. In mock most questions were straightforward.
Real exam i felt little bit harder (i had to do guesswork in that)
I won't compare it with SCJP But i have to put atleast 3 times effort than SCWCD 1.4(thanks to HFSJ). may be my preparation method is not shortest, but i know the things well.

A special thanks to all those who share their preparation ( Gaurav Agnihotri, Steve Lock and others). Here are their posts, they explained very well.
