I already bought the SCWCD exam kit by Deshmukh (1.4 version) and I have the exam coming up on jan 5th. I have read a lot of rave reviews about the HEad First book.
Is there anyone else who has passed the SCWCD exam and relied on just the Deshmukh book? Should I buy the HEad First book ? I dont want to regret later


Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks,
Vamshi

I have read the book (:cool and I will say it is very good for me, a visual learner. It reinforces the concepts with repetitions and funny pics. What captivated me in the book were the visual diagrams & use cases, which will be difficult to forget long after the exam.
For the exam, you wont regret buying it, although it wont be of much use after the exam.

I just took a look at the book at Border Book. As Indrajit Donahar said, it's really a good book and i decided to buy this book a couple minutes ago. Now i'm waiting for the book delivered.

Anyhow, Good luck to you on the coming exam...!!

I think the SCWCD study kit by Deshmukh is very good for SCWCD 1.3 exams. I didn't seen this book for 1.4 exam. I am refering both books for the SCWCD preperation. Comparatively H&F book is more visual and illustrative. Study kit give more technical details. But the SCWCD study kit book which I am refering is lack of new topics especially for JSP study. ( EL and tags).

Thank you.
