During a looong hard winter I finally made it. Today I got it with 75%!
It was not so easy as I thought. But for me I am working full time and I did the preparation only in the evenings or on weekends the score is fine.

I had around 5 questions to Patterns.
A lot to the DD in various forms.
A lot to EL how to get properties with the requstScope variable.
and all the other things.... Sorry couldn't write a protocol.
BUT there were 4 or 5 questions with drag and drop.
The time was ok, I finished ca. 30 min. before the time was over. BUT I used it to redo some marked question. So in the end I finished 2 Minutes before the show was over.:-)

I really recommend for learning the HeadFrist book, but it has some drawbacks. If did the book and you basicly know the topics, you miss a complete Reference ot each topic. So if you need comparison of each topic with the most importen things do it on your own or by the book from the indean author but which is only from 2002 (don't have the name here). The official specs are good but I find in some cases not very helpfull. If you see them you think, oh sh... that's all I have to learn?!?!?

Ok Thanke you for this great page. I came here very often only to see how people made it through.

OH my score in the HeadFirst exam was the first time 29 questions :-( one week later I think 50 questions or so.

by and stay tuned - what would you recommend is better next Java Developer or Business Component Developer?

Congratulations!

Thanks for sharing your experience.

The SCJD is more expensive and also harder than SCBCD. I heard that both the Architect and the Developer exam will be re-formulated next year or so.

The book you refer to is Deshmukh's Exam Study Kit. The new edition for SCWCD 1.4 should be able this month:

Hanumant Deshmukh, Jignesh Deshmukh, et al.
SCWCD Exam Study Kit, 2nd Edition (310-081)
Manning Publications
ISBN 1932394389

Yes Ariel you are right with the name of the author. I think the a combination of both books would cool - or work around get both!:-)
