According to some posts I have participated some time ago, it is very easy compared to programmer certification etc(with respect to amount of content, toughness of questions etc).

Any feedback on the above?

Kishore,

toughness is a relative term. So for a veteran Servlet/JSP programmer, the exam seems a cake walk whereas for a novice it appears like the big thing on the earth. Also it varies based on what is being tested. A programmer exam tests you on the syntax where as an architect exam tests you on abstract level. So they cannot be compared for toughness with a common reference point.

My 2 cents
Siva

I've seen on the web as well as in a couple certification books that the programmer certification was supposed to be one of the harder exams anyway, because it serves as a foundation for all other exams. So if you were comparing the relative difficulty of the SCJP to the SCWCD (assuming adequate experience in each respective areas), naturally the WCD would be easier. Of course, I am still studying for the WCD, so I will reserve my personal opinion until I take the exam!
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
