Hello Friends,
Finally i passed the SCWCD with 81% and am able to write this mail and my experiences..
I am really happy...

Here is a brief list:

First of all I read HFSJ->Kathy,Bert and Bryan thank you all so much for such a nice , superb book.Did the chapterwise mocks along with the first read.
Then i went through the Hanumant Deshmuck Book once.Its a good source to understand a topic in deep.
To read these books i almost took a month, and then had a two months Gap.
Again after two months i started reading HFJS and after completing i started doing online free mocks(j2eeCertificate,JDiscuss),and Whizlabs(commercial)..
On the last second day of my exam i realized to take the Enthuware (commercial 30 dollars)package.
I took but it was very late so was just able to complete four exmas..
But they are too good.
I would suggest to go for Enthuware and Whizlabs too is good in terms of time management.
I took my Final HFJS mock exam(got 65%) on Friday and went for the FINAL SCWCD Sun's examination on MONDAY.
The exam is not too tough.its almost same as the final mock exam in book.
The questions covered all the topics appropriately.
EL questions were not so tough. i scored 100% in EL.So onlu patterns and EL were the two whrere i scored full.

Now i would like to Thank-

1.Bryan for giving such a nice tutorial on Dynamic attributes.--http://www.coderanch.com/t/170429/java-Web-Component-SCWCD/certification/Tutorial-Dynamic-Attributes
2.Mark Peaboy for giving such a nice strategy for solving pattern problems.btw I got 100% in patterns.Thanks Mark.Kathy's book has described alll the patterns in a superb way.
2.Thanks to Mikalai Zaikin,Fredrick Ensault for the fantastic notes.
3.Thanks to all Ranchers for Helping on solving my problems .Thanks Rancy,Tridib,Satao,Mark,Rajee,Chinta,Jyoti,Sunder,Dhruvi,..

SO in short , to prepare for the exam-
HFSJ
Hanumant Deshmuck's book

Whizlabs
Enthuware

Hi,
I am preparing for SCWCD for the past one month..
I have read Head First JSP and Servlets once..
I haven't memorized thing yet..
I have understood things..
My query is like...
just HFJS and mocks alone are enough. Or should i go through Deshmukh also.

Can you just share links of mocks and materials that can support my preparation.

Thanks.

thanks everyone,

Shaiber,Also i read the specifications though not very deeeply, but used them whener i wanted to clear my doubts.They are good.

I think,Head First and specs would be enough to score good, but in Deshmukh's book there are chapterwise mock tests at the end.You can do them for practice.

some good mock test sites which i uesd were:
j2eeCertificate
jdiscuss
javaranch's mock test
jpilot
jiris(i have heard its good one, but somehow i am never able to sign up there,it says Verification code error..If you try it , let me also know how you did it)

thanks,
mallika
