Hi everyone.

I would like to announce with great satisfaction that I a new sun certified web component developer. I am really happy with this new achievement.

Concerning the studies, I used Head First book. I started studying on the 11th of September and I took the test on 11th of October. For the test, I read the book twice. I also read some review notes I found here, at Java Ranch.

The test itself is not very hard. Of course there are some pick questions but if you study, it won�t be a big deal. What makes the exam, most of the times, much easier than most of the monk exams I have used is the fact that the exam gives you how many answers you have to choose. This is a great hand.

I am here to help.

Thank you Java Ranch for supporting this great community of Java Professionals.

I thought I would have a lot of trouble on the security part of the exam but I did really good on that part.

I didn�t do really well on the servlet technology model part of the exam.

The questions aren�t very though seriously. If you study using the head first book you will be fine.

The exam had 70 questions. However one of those seventy questions was invalid. I don�t know why.

The exam had more drag and drop questions that I would expect it to have.

I believe that Head First is enough to take the exam but it is always good read extra materials.

Congrats dude!

Yes you are right there are 69 scored questions and 1 unscored question.
I don't know whay is it so!

Head First + Specs if mentioned in Head First + Free mock exams
+ and last but not the least "Java Ranch"
AND you will find the test very easy!

One month, Good way to go!

Regards,
Govinda

I didn't read all the specs for the test, but I did read part of it.

Seriously yall, the test is not that hard. Yesterday I didt a test to work for IBM that dealt with the J2SE. Seriouly, this test was much tougher then the SCJP exam I took last year.
