Please guide me how should I prepare to achieve this objective means how many hours I should study for the exam and where can I find the mock exams for SCWCD 1.4.
Those who have cleared the SCWCD1.4 recently/earlier or preparing for the test please send me your opinions and, also what are the major points that I should focus on.
If anybody is there from India (Bangalore or Delhi or Bombay) please gives me your contact details as I am in India (Bangalore) right now.
HFSJ is the book that most people say they use to help with the exam, so this is a good start. Read it and make sure you understand the examples. If you want a score in excess of 80%, come up with other examples, practice, practice, practice and learn from the book (make sure you check out the errata here).
If you are new to Servlets and JSP, there will be a lot of new stuff here for you, there are a number of underlying concepts that are quite different from other programming paradigms. Make sure you understand them. A good knowledge of the underlying concepts will help you answer questions that you otherwise would struggle with, or may not even be able to answer.
Lastly if you don't understand something post a question here and then when you get an answer make sure you understand it.
My first bit of advice is that if you are going to be a mime, you shouldn't talk. Even the tiny ad is nodding:
