I passed the SCWCD tonight! What a relief! I scored an 89%. I started studying about 6 weeks ago with no prior knowlege of Servlets or JSP. I studied about 2-3 hours a night. To prepare for the exam I used the following resources: 1.Installed and got familiar with Tomcat 4.0 2.Read the fisrt four chapters of More Servlets (great intro to Servlets and JSP) 3. Read Ken Zrobok's notes 4. Read both of Miftah Khan's notes 5. Ersin Eser Deployment Descriptor aid 6. JSP 1.2 Syntax Card. 7. Took Eduardo Cobian's mock, Mika Hirvasoja's mock, the JavaRanch mock, Suns practice questions. 8. Read many posts on this BB. I went through Ken's and Miftah's notes about 4 times each. I think you can pass with these alone . I knew a lot more about DTDs than I needed. It was on the test, just not as in depth as I thought it would be. I thought some of the questions were out from left field. But since the questions I got wrong were evenly spread between the different areas, I can't pinpoint any hole in my studies to warn anyone about. Learn the notes cold... Thanks to Ken Zrobok, Miftah Khan, Ersin Eser, Eduardo Cobian, Mika Hirvasoja, and everyone who posts to this site.
