finally i cleared the exam after lot of effort.It took me two and half months to prepare.I followed these things for the exam
* for first month i read Head Frist Servlet and Jsps(2 times) and then i took the online mock exams of scwcd 1.4 available on net
* after reading many ranchers experience i got to know that there is more focus on practical,thanks all , so i did lot of examples on these topics Listeners,Session,Servlets,EL,JSTL,Customtags,JavaBeans
*In Design patterns scored 100% thanks to Peabody the points were really helpful in the examination point of view.
*I referred api when i got doubt on methods and return types.
*I read customtags from Hanumanth book (scwd 1.4) and found more topics are covered than in HFSJ.But HFSJ is master of all books.
*I did marcus exam three days before my exam and scored an average of 90% these questions really tests your knowledge thanks marcus for the tests and the material.
*I took JwebPlus exams which were really close to exam questions.
*I took scwcd 1.4 mock exam of HFSJ just a day before the final exam and scored 62%

While taking exam i felt that more questions are based on practical and bit tricky.Make sure you memorise each and every senctence of HFSJ.
Do as many examples as possible.
El functions are also included in the exam.
Custom tags takes bit more time in the exam.
i got only one drag and drop question.
Some questions were direct.

i really appreciate and thanks to everyone who helped me and also the site members for maintaing such a wonderful site
Those who are appearing for exam goodluck

I have HFSJ that I bought 2 years ago. Looks like, this book is for SCWCD 1.4. Is it still good for SCWCD 1.5?? Now I am really serious about taking SCWCD exam. Please guide me on this.

i read HFSJ 1.4 and did some examples what ever i got in my mind.I think the book is really a path to understand scwcd from core.Yes i my point of view HFSJ 1.4 should be good enough if you have one.If not buy a new version of HFSJ 1.5
