Hi all,
cleared SCJP1.4 with 95% .

purchased HFSJ yesterday (7th May'06) will start it reading from today (8th May'06).

On (20thJuly'06) i will complete 6 months @ my comapny. So that i will become eligible to ask for reimbursement of the
the WCD exam voucher fees.

From today (8th May'06) to (20th July'06) i have roughly 73 days. Out which , 20 days are weekends and remaining 53 are working days

i have read Marty Hall Larry Brown's book and so i m quiet FAMILIAR with the servle/jsp basics. The things that the book didnt cover
are - JSTL,
web app security,
custom tags,
design patterns
EL(in depth)
stuff like ServletConfig etc etc

I m quite familiar with the basic process in writing and running a servlet/jsp. i.e where do we put the files, what for the web.xml is etc etc, cookies and session management basics

keeping above scenario in mind, i want to conduct a POLL where i would like you all guys to tell me ESTIMATED preparation time for the exam
Please also tell by what date should i buy the voucher and at what date should i give the exam.

Please contribute generously to the poll.

Thanks in advance. I will be grateful for all who will contribute

There is no exact estimated time of prep which can be applied to everyone but surely that depends on how familiar you are already with hands on exp with jsp/servlets. Its not just jsp and servlets but wcd had lot more topics which are probably least used or used in a perfectly planned web development scenario.

If you are already having handson with jsp/servlets just grab the specs after first reading of HFSJ and whn u feel confid and u start getting 75-80% in mocks you can be sure of scoring good at exam.

hope tht long essay gave you some confid..

It took me a study of 45 days approx.

all d best!
