Hello Friends,

I took the SCWCD today at Chicago and passed it with 97%. I am very happy about the result. When i appeared at the prometeric today morning i was a bit nervous about the exam.

However once the exam began everything was fine.

Here's is brief of what i had used to prepare :-

1. HFSJ --> Kathy, Thank you for coming out with such a superb book.
2. Milkai Zakin --> Your notes are awesome, thank you. They really helped me understand topics in detail which then added to my confidence.
3. Enthuware --> I had purchased their mocks and it did help me.
4. HFSJ Mock exam --> It rocks. I got 63% when i took it 4 days before the scwcd, so was confident of clearing the final exam.
5. J2EE Certificate/Jdiscuss exam.
6. Hanumant Deshmukh for Design Patterns (beautifully explained).
7. Frederic Esnault --> API, nice compilation.

last and the most important java ranch, i used to look at it from more of an inspirational point of view, reading through fellow ranchers success etc etc

I put off the exam quite a few times earlier in the year due to project pressures/deadlines etc, but since october i decided come what may i would finish it off and then used to slog daily weekday nights and then over the weekends.. I am happy it came to a nice end.

My advise to felow ranchers would be work hard, come what may.
there would be times when you would feel how would i clear this in the real exam..which is natural as some topics would be relatively difficult.
In that case you gotta wait as the exam comprises of questions on all topics and then make the most when you get questions on the subject of your comfort.

As in one day cricket see through the good bowlers and then pick the not so good ones and score runs of them as finally it is the total score that matters.

Would be having a blast tonight

Thanks,
Yogesh

Hi Anitha,

practice each and every question you get your eye on !!! who knows that type may be on the exam and you can score on that.

Max,

I got a mix, some straight ones, some which made me think, drag drop ones, Design patterns i saw quite a few, it was my strongest topic.

a bit same as me, just joined and being a fresher, i spend more time at the company for which i work, but with the project deliver y being scheduled in december mid week, i should start sloogin on week ends.

My advise to felow ranchers would be work hard, come what may.


yes...its true, work at your pace, take time

some topics would be relatively difficult.
In that case you gotta wait as the exam comprises of questions on all topics and then make the most when you get questions on the subject of your comfort.



yes i too work on the same strategy - i think only chaters 9 and 10 are a pain in the ass !


congrats yogesh, rocking score !

Thank you friends..

Suman,

No they did not ask me about the JCP certificate , though i had carried it along with me.

Alim,
me too was not sure which one to purchase, took a decision abt enthuware based on what fellow ranchers said around the time i was abt to purchase. many do believe Whizlabs is better..

Bert/Bryan,
I have a suggestion for HFSJ, can we include an Appendix section which is dedicated to API for all the related javax* jsp* tagext* classes, this way people can have a handy reference in the book itself and would not need to go to the net or java docs when in doubt.

Thanks,
Yogesh.
