hi,

I am planning to do the SCJP soon (in the next month), and am thinking about whether to do the SCWCD exam next.

What i really want to know is how much time/effort does it take to pass it compared to the SCJP?

I have spent since mid jan preparing for the SCJP, and have found it hard going as i work fulltime (as a Java web developer near 3 exp.), but have also found it rewarding.

But i dont think i want to commit myself to such a heavy workload again for awhile, so guys can you give me your opinions on how much effort the SCJWD would require for me. I have a good knowledge of web apps (jsp,servlet,tag libs etc) as well design patterns .

You'd better focus on SCJP first. You'll have plenty of time to ask for this when you've passed

There's a lot to remember (tags and API). But questions are not as tricky as SCJP. I think it's easier but there's still work to do.

If you're interested in it, you can still give it a quick read, and decide to go for it or not.

I have a good knowledge of web apps (jsp,servlet,tag libs etc) as well design patterns .

That's a plus. But don't take it for granted

Good luck.

Hi,
I am a newbie in web application development and i am planning to give SCWCD.
I have passed SCJP 5.0.

Please suggest whether Head first book will be enough for preparation

Are most of the question ask your theoretical knowledge.(no exhibit button to click )
Is there a separate exam which tests your programming skill ?

Dear Harshad,

You should check FAQs and other links in SCWCD forum to get the answers.

Head First JSP and Servlets from what i have heard is enough.

David Bridgewater is also good book.

There are many free mock exams available, you should check those (you will get them in the links i asked you to check out.)

Ate Breve!
