Hi,

Just wanted to let everyone know that I passed the SCWCD test with a score of 71%. Though the score is probably not that great, I am satisfied with the score, and I could not have done better with the amount of studying I have done.

First of all. I had no prior experience with Servlets and JSP. I am however an experienced AWT/Swing/Java developer.

This is how I prepared for the exam:

1. I spent about 2 hours per day for around 4 weeks. I intensed the studying the closer I got to the test, and the last few days I studied around 4 hours per day.
2. I read the Head First Servlets and JSP book. This is a great book that has tons of information. I read that book about 3 times.
3. I read Marc Peabody's notes on J2EE patterns. Thank you for those notes. I scored 100% on J2EE patterns just like his notes said!!
4. I took the HFSJ books mock exam. I only score 35/69 there which made me realize I needed to study some more...This was one week before the exam. I did not take any other practice exams.

I did not do anything else other than this.

Now I am going to get a pizza and drink som beer and strong cider to celebrate.

Take care!
