Hi Junta,


Its true , SCWCD in four days !!! . Actually I bought a Sun Voucher about a year ago and then got busy with my job which is mainly concentrated towards JavaScript and JSPs.But we use our own API's in development , so wasn't familier with Servlets ,JSTL and Custom Tag Development . Anyways last wednesday I found that my voucher was going to expire on 28/02/07
:roll: .And I was damn busy till Friday.

So I started prepration on Saturday .Started with David Bridgewater's book on SCWCD , grasped the important concepts and two minute drill was very useful. Finished the book till Sunday Noon .Then grasped HFSJ, had read the Servlet part before so just skimmed through it. ......but it was hard to finished the book ,whole of Monday was consmed in that .Heard that Whizlab is giving discount on SCWCD prep kit so bought it

At last finished the book on Tuesday afternoon and till then i haven't solved ny mocks . So started on mocks by 7PM with whizlabs.Gave 5 tests back2back.Scored
49/69 - Diagnostic Test
53/69 - First Practise Test
44/69 - Second Practise Test
45/69 - Third Practise Test
56/69 - Final Test

By 3am on wednesday I revised HFSJ again and given test till 4AM. Got 52/69.

So on 11 am reached the prometric centre ,ad test lasted for 90 minutes.
GOT 60/69.

My feedback:
The questions asked on Web Security were new to me.
HFSJ is perfect guide for SCWCD , with David Bridgewater's book as perfect supplement.
EL and custom tag have maximum focus.
Please revise ejb nd resource env items thoroughly.

At last I thank this forum for motivating me to take this magnificent exam.

There's a trophy that comes with that. I'll get around to ordering it some day.

Congrats on your pass.

Ahhh I see. I get a little concerned that people might get the impression that the exam is easy and they can study for four days and pass it. From a closer look at your original posting and your additional feedback I can see that is not really what you were saying. I would not like people to spend the money on the exam and then fail because they had not realised it does take considerable preparation, and I would not like people to get the impression that the exam is easy and that it should carry little weight.

Thank you for your feedback.

I agree. I don't particularly fancy the "I passed in X days" kind of thread either.
