How does the SCWCD compare to the SCJP in regards to difficulty, time needed to prepare for, and breadth of content?

Also, any suggested reading materials to help prepare for the SCWCD exam?

SCWCD is said to be easier than SCJP. But there's still a lot of API and tag definitions to learn.

Good luck.

SCWCD expects you to know and memorize a lot compared to SCJP!

I agree.
SCWCD is easier for you if you are a memorizing machine without any coding experience.
If you like coding and logic, SCJP is easier.
