Hi again.

I passed the SCWCD 5 with 89%

Preparation took about 2 months but with about 3 weeks within in which I could not study.

1.Readed HFSJ (1st edition) twice (second time very fast, just to review).
2.Readed Peabody's notes on Patterns
3.Did some online mock exams
4.Did HFSJ final mock exam (78%)

Post-exam feelings:

1.Not difficult, but not easy
2.Plenty of time, done in 2 hours
3.Some questions on patterns tried to be confusing, and one of them really was
4.I think I got wrong at most 2 questions for not memorizing perfectly tags and APIS, but could have been up to 4
5.There was one question with Java 5 foreach loop and another one with generics (which had an error), but just syntax, no real problem
6.There were 3 or 4 quite/really confusing questions, and I really think that 2 of them may be wrong or at least too ambiguous
7.There was 1 "What the hell are you talking about?" question

So now as the book says, I'm ready to become obscenely rich!

Good luck for those who are preparing
