Thanks to everyone of you Ranchers, for your support and active participation. I cleared the exam with 94% . Special thanks to Kathy, Bates and Basham for their wonderful book, to Mikalai Zaikin for his wonderful compilation of the specs, to Deshmukh and Malavia for their thought provoking book .
I had prepared roughly for a month, read HFSJ thrice, read the quizzlets and exercise questions form Deshmukh's book(really enjoyed them) and revised the spec compilation by Mikalai , twice . I had also used Tomcat 5.0 to workout a few concepts .
Apart fromt this I got 79% in HFSJ Final Mock Exam (Questions are too good)
I felt the exam was relatively(comparerd to SCBCD ) a bit hard and thorough understanding of the concepts and their usage is being tested . My special wishes to everyone who are preparing for SCWCD . ALL THE BEST . and just a small piece of what I want to convey " Please do the hard work and the results will be as expected "
The SCWCD links http://www.javaranch.com/scwcdlinks.jsp has all links for free mock exams . I feel the mock exams are more to find out which topics we are weak at. The real exam focusses more on how clearly we have understood the concepts .
