Hi All,

After shifting my focus of study from SCWCD 1.3 to 1.4, I was a little tense to take SCWCD 1.4 without any reference book.

But thanks to Javaranchers for the links for new topics and thanks to Kathy to provide the chapter on Tag files and Simple Tag from HF book......

I passed SCWCD 1.4 with 89 %....

I had a lot of questions on the new topics included in exam objective e.g. EL (some 6-7 questions), Tag Files (4 Q's), Filter (2-3 Q's), Semantics of Deployment Descr.(2-3 Q's including one on EJB ref).

A bit of advice for those who will be taking the test.....go through all the methods mentioned in API for ServletContext specially, don't rely only on the methods covered in SCWCD Study kit.

Thanks,
Swati.

Hi,

Why exactly are you saying "don't rely on SCWCD Study Kit" ? In fact, I am totally depending on that book for my SCWCD 1.3 exam scheduled to be on the 18th. I refer the servlet & jsp specs though. But I am worried about your statement.


Thanks.

S Subramonyan,

You should feel fine about relying on the SCWCD Study Kit to pass the 1.3 exam. I used that book and got an 89%. That book is great for the 1.3 exam.
The book has a review section at the end that I suggest you look over before the actual exam.

The SCWCD Study Kit will definitely work perfectly for the 1.3 version of the exam!

cheers,
Kathy

Hi S Subramonyan

As Anthony and Kathy have pointed out, SCWCD Study Kit is a great book for SCWCD 1.3, and u will definitely not face any problem giving that exam with this book.......

My comment was rather solely related to SCWCD 1.4 exam which is revised and the syllabus has been changed to a great extent.

Don't worry, u will do great in SCWCD 1.3 with Study Kit.

Vijaya, u r lucky to get HF Book for preparation. I am not sure how much time u will take to read the book, but I think 1 month time frame can help u complete the study for SCWCD 1.4.
About questions in exams, there were more questions on JSP as compared to Servlets. It seems the focus of exam now has been shifted more towards JSP (and new concepts introduced in J2EE 1.4 ) rather than Servlets.

Hope this helps.....

Cheers,
Swati.
