Hi Ranchers!

I took SCWCD today and passed with a score of 94% - 4 mistakes.

Session Management - 85%
Bulding JSP Pages Using Standard Actions - 75%
Building JSP Pages Using Tag Libraries - 87%
J2EE Patterns - 83%
everything else - 100%

Answering questions took me exactly 1h, next 40 mins took me to review marked questions and to go through all the questions to verify my answers.

I learned from HFSJ (had 76% on the final exam (answered in exactly 1h without verifying my answers)). In addition, I posted a few posts to this forum (thanks for answers, guys!).

I also had SCWCD tutorial from IBM's Developer Works, but it didn't teach me anything new (just browsed it after HFSJ and seen I knew almost everything).

I also looked in Whizlabs simulator, but didn't like it, some of the questions were from 1.3 so I quickly resigned using it.

Next, I looked into Mikalai Zaikin's notes, I found some items new for me there, but dropped it without reading everything.

Ah, and I also took JavaRanch mock exam, but that was easy one...

So, in summary: HFSJ is definietly enough to take an exam, but one needs look into details.
And what now? Hard to say... I think I'll stop my certifications for now (well, I took all these 3 certs just for 50$ - SCJP 5.0 beta gave free voucher for SCWCD, SCJA beta was free...:-) And for Poland, 150$ is not that cheap But who knows - if I decide to continue my certification progress, it will probably be SCJD or SCMAD)

congratulations !!!

While on this ..let me ask you, are the questions of the type in the HFSJ final mock exam ? Well in the HFSJ most of the questions are like "choose all that apply" ..is it the same in the actual exam ...or is it like choose 1 or choose 2 ? Meaning selecting a specific set of ans to a question?

The introduction to final exam in HFSJ gives you the answer. Real exam gives you the number of correct answers. About questions - most are easier than in HFSJ, but some were as difficult as HFSJ's ones.
