It took me four weeks to prepare for SCJP2 (about 4 hours per day) and three weeks for SCWCD (4 hours a day). I cleared SCJP2 (93%) on Feb 17, 2002 and cleared SCWCD (89%) on March 17, 2002 (today).
Generally speaking, SCWCD is not difficult. To me, it seems more difficult than I expected (I hope it to be easy). The reason is that I met some questions that address some issues I did not pay too much attention. For other people, it may be easy. I missed 6 in following 4 sections (got 100% in other 9 sections):
1) The structure and deployment of modern servlet web applications;
2) Servlet container model;
3) Design and develop a custom tab library;
4) Design patterns for web applications
Here is my experience:
Step 1: Go through Java Servlet Spec 2.3 and JavaServer Pages Spec 1.2 (some exercise)
Step 2: Ken�s note
Step 3: Order book: Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages, read some chapters
Step 4: Order JWebPlus
Step 5: Mock tests: online listed at http://www.javaranch.com/scwcdlinks.jsp and JWebPlus (first round avg 70%, second round 86%-93%), random 93%
Download SCWCD@Whiz trial version: 91%
Java Ranch is a great place, and from here I learned a lot. Going for those certificates is really good practice. It is putting your knowledge in order along with learning something you didn't know before.
