Hi Experts,

This is my first message post in this forum. Though i have not involved myself actively i have been a keen admirer of this forum for quite sometime.
Well, i cleared JSP in july with 93%. Thanks to the ranch & ranchers for their in-depth discussion on the topic. I benefitted from it a lot. Also special note on Whizlabs simulator. They are certainly the best. It trains you to the worst, and the real test is far easier thus helping you score a higher percentage.
Now coming to the point, i have booked my SCWCD in november. I will also be getting my copy of HFS in abt a couple of days. Well, i would like to what would be a methodical approach to tackle this exam. Is there any other book that needs to be refered apart from HFS.
Looking forward to your replies!

Head First Servlets & JSP is all that you need. If you have some experience working with Servlets and JSPs you can go over first 3 chapters of this book really quickly. Rest of the book is also not difficult. IF YOU HAVE EXTRA TIME then scanning SCWCD Exam Study Kit will also help. SCWCD Exam Study Kit is infact for SCWCD 1.3. Just scan those area which are included in SCWCD 1.4 and you will come to know those topics after you have gone through Head First Servlets & JSP

Regarding simulator have a look on

Whizlab simulator are not that much cost effective, they are way costly than the value they deliver.
IMHO, ANY reasonable simulator with Head First Servlets & JSP will do.
I can not buy that costly simulator (2 times the price of book). Where as book deliveres lot more than that of simulator. If you can buy costly simulator then its your choice.

Welcome to the forum and good luck with your perparation. Folks here are very friendly and don't hesitate to give a shout if you need help.

Hope this helps

I don't see here any value specifically delivered by whizlabs simulator( priced at around $100 (Canadian) )

Here is my suggestion to get 95% or even more on exam

1. Study the Head first JSP and Servlets thoroughly.
2. Brush through Jignesh's book
3. Go over the specs for JSP, JSTL
4. Go over the api for Servlet related classes and interfaces.
5. TAKE ANY simulator

Hi Alfred,

Are you sure on your above statement? I am planning to write the exam by reading *ONLY* the Head First Servlets & JSP. ( Infact, I have been reading it for couple of weeks) I don't have much time left to read other stuff. All I need is pass the exam with decent ( around 80-85%) score. Any comment on this is appreciated.

Thanks,

Prasad
