Having read some of the posts from this forum, it seems many people believe that the web-component exam is tougher than that of the SCJP2.
If this is the case, how long do you suggest to prepare for the exam?
for the SCJP2 I spent just over a month but had quite a lot of previous experience, while I've only been working with the J2EE platform for the past month.....
How long have you guys given/gave yourself to prepare for this, and how did you go about studying for it!?
Any help would be much appreciated,
Rowan.

I would say SCWCD is a lot easier than SCJP2. If you have JSP/Servlets experience, you can pass SCWCD easily. Two weeks preparation is more than enough.

I was hoping it would be a 1-2 month thing, I'm back to uni for my final year after that(I'm currently on my industrial placement) and will not get another change till I graduate.....
I'll book for june......and see what happens!
Many thanks,
Rowan.
