I just passed the SCWCD exam. I would like to thank JavaRanch for all their great compilation efforts of the exam links and for their effort in developing their very much helpful mock exam. Special thanks to Ken Zrobok for his notes. They really helped me in my preparation for the exam. Also, thanks to everybody who contributed in these discussions. Reading them was so beneficail to me. As for the exam, it was OK...though mine was not as straight forward as I expected. I scored 84%.I got no questions on anything that was not covered in Sun's exam objectives. No filters... No design patterns other than the four patterns included in the exam objectives. Although, some of the answer choices included patterns' names that weren't included, but the right answer was always one of the four patterns in the objectives. But after all, I base this on the exam I got... Good Luck to u all.
