I don't see the point of this exam, it is too simple to even merit the $150 in exam fees and all you get is another line on your resume. Anybody who has had any experience writing jsp's/servlets is gonna be able to do well in the test.....its just not worth. I would think that an SCJD certificate would make so much more sense plus it sounds like a fun/learning experience.

I agree with you.. I don't think SCWCD adds much to a resume that already includes JSP/servlet work experience.
However, IMHO, I think it is indeed worth it for those who are new and trying to break through into the Java world, or those who aren't really professional programmers but want to demonstrate knowledge of Java on their resume. The SCJP and SCWCD one-liners help alot in that regard.
Just my $0.02
