Hi All,

I cleared SCWCD with a score of 88% on Saturday. Thanks a lot to all the ranchers for sharing all the usefull information and their experiences about the exam.

I used the following materials for study
1> HFSJ - read 2-3 times and solve all exercises
2> Solved HFSJ mock exam 1 day before the actual exam- scored 72 %
3> Read Dynamic Attributes tutorial on javaranch
4> Once I had read HFSJ and knew the concepts , Milkai Zaikin's notes were very usefull to revise the details.
5> Solved all online free mock exams available at SCWCD Links on this Forum.
6> Solved some tests available through Google search on SCWCD exam.

Java Ranch is a great support for the progress!




Moving on to either SCBCD /webservices cert.. !

Kedar,
It doesn't matter if you have given SCJP long time ago.
But I would suggest not to delay the next exam too much. I myself kept preparing for SCWCD for a long time.I have never worked on JSP/Servlets. Also I was distracted few times by various activities and hence it dragged too long towards the end.
So I would say..do not drag too much.. Get startedwith the studies--Focus--and don't stop till you are certified.

hi Swati,
first of all congtratulations
I one your post you said that you never worked iwth JSP and servlets as Same thing with me. I cant say that I never worked but I never worked on full flashed(real time) project but did some small examples and excecises. Can I be eligible to give SCWCD.I just wanted to know that person who doesnt have real time experience can do it and Is Head First Servlet and JSP is enough or need to buy another book for a beginner like me.Please help me out.

Anybody owning SCJP is. You can pass even without work experience.

Is Head First Servlet and JSP is enough or need to buy another book for a beginner like me.

Head First should be enough. But also check the tutorial on Dynamic Attributes at the SCWCD Links. And don't forget to check the errata as well.
