I cracked SCWCD exam today. Scored 92% - 64/80

Only Book: HFSJ - Kathy, Bert

Mock Tests: Marcus Greens - http://www.examulator.com/moodle/
JavaRanch's own SCWCD Mock Exam
Mika Hirvasoja's Mock Exam
Anand Chawla's Mock Exam

Study Time: 2-3 hours daily for 3 months while on the job. I had no prior experience with live J2EE/JSP/Servlets projects or code. But now I can say I'm PRO in JSP and Servlets at least.

Exam lasted little longer than I expected. There were 80 questions instead of 69. Abt 4-5 questions on drag-and-drop.

Voucher:
I'm from India. I purchased the voucher 5 mins before the exam. I got it for discounted price of Rs 5,500 in NIIT, Pune.

Voucher is cheaper on website (Rs 4,200). But
Sun India website just sucks, it does not allow to buy this exam online. You can proceed from above URL till the checkout page but thats where they do not have any option for providing Creadit Card number. I tried 100 times but same damn story. This is a second bad experience of Sun India for me. They should do something about it.

Anyways its all over now. Its time to party !!!

Cheers!
Swapnil

69 questions is default and anounced at Sun's Site. 80 questions is strange because isn't normal.
But I think that I listen at anywhere that in some tests this can occur. Am I correct?

Any way, congratulations dude!

Hi ! Elton !

1) If you divide 64 / 69 you will get Swapnil's score (92%)

2) As Bert said recently - new Sun Microsystems practice is to put some extra questions on exam to have free beta testers review new questions for [current/ next version] exam.

I'm a bit old fashioned, and I don't think an exam is something you crack. Well, as it appears that you have been using illegal material, this expression may fit. Anyway, I removed the link.
