Thanks for all help from you.
Frankly,the examination was not so easy as I had imagined before for the reasons below:
Firstly, I had passed SCJP with 89%.
Secondly,I am a programmer for website with one and half experience.
Thirdly,I read a lot post from this forum which mentioned that the exam is easier than SCJP.
But,during the examination,I even suspect whether I could pass it.It is really hard for me.So finally, I merely got 77%.I lost almost all the marks on the aspect of security,this is because I had thought security is not important compared with others at all,but I am wrong.
Next,I would tell you my preparation on the examination:
First, I did the mocks every day on the eve of examination.
Second,I read the specifications about Servlet and JSP servral times.
Third,I wrote a lot of test codes on Website.From my experience, I think Resin is more suitable for invoices for its conveniences.
Last,Logon on JavaRanch everyday.
By the way,I never buy any commercial materials.
Good Luck

Congrats!
A pass is a pass, no matter what kind of score. It reflects your efforts, which are more important
than others. BTW, how long have you prepared for this?

Congrats Niu, you are our new SCWCD ...
Don't think abt the score. A lot job to be done in life man! I think hardness is a relative measurement. Like i was pretty comfortable with standalone solution development rather than web development when i started preparing for SCWCD which seemed hard to me. But when the preparation was complete i found the exam not so hard. So to me Preparation for the exam was harder than the exam itself...
When i am in my new job as a database/swing programmer i was almost lost for the first month, sometimes thinking i don't know even J of Java... ...but eventually managed it and now improving.
So we have to judge and justify according to our own position and level...where similar people's experience will work as a guideline some of which may not be applicable to our own style.
Hope you will continue your journey to the very far....
