Hi All,

I just passed SCWCD 1.4 exam with 98% marks (missed 100% by 1 question this time ) .
I am thankful to all the HFSJ team and the fellow ranchers.

Here goes my preparation
1. Passed SCJP 1.4 with 100% on 5th March, so was a bit enthusiastic about the new certification. Bought the voucher and the HFSJ book on the same day.
2. I had very less working knowledge on JSP and Servlets. So it took me 5 weeks to complete the book. Meanwhile I also studied Hanumant Deshmukh book for SCWCD.
3. Took the final mock exam of HFSJ and got 65% marks. Was a bit disappointed about the score. Again revised the book.
4. Reviewed carefully my mistakes in the mock and verified them with the specs.
5. Also I took all the mock exams mentioned in javaranch and got an average score of 85%.J2eecertificate.com exam was difficult and got an average of 65% in that.

About exam pattern
1. There were around 8 drag and drop questions.
2. I didn't get any question on dynamic attributes.
3. Design pattern was easy and Marc Peabody's notes are more than sufficient. Marc, how to claim my beer
4. Got more than 5 questions on EL. HFSJ is sufficient.
5. Got questions about location of tlds and tag files.
6. Got 2 or more questions on filters checking the knowledge about the <dispatcher> tag.

This is all what I remember. Next target is SCBCD but confused which version to go for...
So that was all about my preparation and exam pattern. Now its party time.

The beer is if you MISS a Design Patterns question. I knew anyone using my notes should get all Design Patterns questions correct, so I felt it was a safe promise.

But with scores like yours, Manish, maybe we could work something out. If you're ever anywhere near Columbus, Ohio let me know via email.

Congrats, I always wonder how can one complete certification in such a short span of time with a great score. I think it is just less than two months. Congrats once again for a brilliant work.

Sudhakar,

You can buy the HFSJ book or borrow it from a friend. It's a great book. I have the Hanumant Deshmukh book but I am afraid it's legal to distribute the copy. There are a plenty of mock exams listed in the forum which you can practice. My advice will be to go through the HFSJ book and ask any of your doubts in the forum. That is the best way to prepare for any certification.

Hope that helps.
