Hey,

I've just passed the SCWCD with 85%.

I did it with no previous knowledge of JSPs or Servlets in 10 days studying 9am-5pm with the HFSJ book. I read it through once. Then made some notes. Did the mock exam in the book and the others found around the forums. I found I just failed a couple of the mock exams but I made sure I knew why I get the questions wrong that I did. Once you do that you start to spot the tings they are trying to test which makes the exam easier. Also I think the fact that you know how many answers are correct in the exam helps bump the score up. That or I was lucky.

Neil

Thanks, it got hard going towards the end but I think the style of the book really helped! So thanks for writing such a great book.

Hi Neil,
Congrats! One question, though, what do you mean by "Also I think the fact that you know how many answers are correct in the exam helps bump the score up."

The questions on both the real exam as in the Mocck exam of the HF book are multiple choice with 1 or more question being correct.
In book it is not indicated what the number of correct answers is, as on the real exam where it is indicated whether 1,2,3, or even 4 answers/choices are correct.
(Of course they don't tell which ones are the correct ones. )
