Today morning I passed SCWCD with 81%.

My scores on Whizlabs tests were around 86% - 92% (even with some funky scoring style on whizlabs See my post).

Here are some numbers.

1. Completed Whizlabs exams in about 75 - 85 minutes and actual exam in 130 minutes . It has nothing to do with exam tension/nervous etc. I was cool and pretty much tuned myself to take exams. Couple of months back I did my SCJP with 83%
2. Sentence phrasing (questions) were much easier and straight forward to understand on Whizlabs and it was not the case on actual exam
3. Whizlabs tests have about 6 drag and drop questions. Actual exam had 13 drag and drop questions
4. Following sections are easier on Whizlabs
  • Building Tag Libraries
  • Web Container Model


  • Whizlabs SCJP simulator seems to be better. SCWCD simulator needs lot of proof reading and verification of some code presented in the exams.

    I tried enthuware for SCJP and thought it was excellent. I'm getting the SCWCD version for sure....
