Hi all,

Just gave the SCWCD and passed (whew!) with 95%. The score is way beyond my wildest dreams (especially since I just about managed to pass the HFSJ mock). The real thing test is very straight-forward.

Actually, only 3-4 questions are tough, and that too because of some arcane wording. Rest assured most of the questions are very very ordinary, no trick stuff.

Drag and drop is OK. Sad part about Drag-and-drop is that you can't review the answers. If you choose to go inside you need to answer again.

I used HFSJ and the SCWCD study kit, and came here very often. Both the books are really useful. HFSJ is great for committing something to memory the first time, while the study kit is wonderful as a mini-reference + last minute revision.

In retrospect, it was really nice to have studied for, and passed, the exam. I've worked on Java/JSP/Struts for some time now, but had it not been for the SCWCD, I would never have learnt so much.

Hope the other aspirants clear the test as well....

Regards,
Prasad

Hi,

Study Kit refers to the following book.

SCWCD Exam Study Kit Second Edition
Java Web Component Developer Certification
Hanumant Deshmukh, Jignesh Malavia, and Matthew Scarpino
http://www.manning.com/books/deshmukh2/about

But, I understand this book has many errors that can give lot of confusion. Secondly this book is meant for those who have some experience in JSPs and Servelets. That means it is not good for beginners.

Dishaan
