I passed today with 84%. I am deeply indebted to the JavaRanch.
I have a background as a PERL CGI programmer and wrote a few 1.X version servlets as my background experience. I studyied at least 40 hours a week starting about January 5, 8 weeks.
Books I used included Core Servlets and JSP 1st Ed by Hall and Java Servlet Programming by Hunter & Crawford 1st Edition, too. I got the first one cheap and the second one a long time ago. Of course Core Servlets and JSP is now freely available as a PDF download. I spent most of my book reading time with Core Servlets.
I took all the mock exams a couple of times and researched every answer that I failed or was not sure if I believed the test.
I worked through the section of Sun's J2EE tutorial on Servlets and JSP. I read spent a number of hours in the DTDs and the specifications. These were downloaded with the tutorial.
I found stuff on Sun's web site about design patterns. I made my own notes and only looked at the ones on the links page a little.
I missed two on SingleThreadModel, one on malicious web site attack, a couple more on Servlets, and one of five on JavaBeans.
I concentrated on JSP at the end cause that's what the others were saying was emphasized. I think there was plenty on servlets.
There were questions about distributable, one about an uncommon exception.
There were some questions that were real easy.
But you better know the syntax pretty well because they will try to confuse you with wording that's close to right.
It took me 81 minutes to go though the questions on my first pass. I corrected one I had wrong in the nine minutes left over.
I really would like to do SCEA next, and if I don't find a job, what else do I have to occupy my mind?
