It pretty much depends on how much time you devote per day during your 30days of preparation.

I would also suggest the following "strategy", given the stringent timeline:
You should plan for:
  • Reading through a very good Exam Preparation Guide (I am using HFSJ)
  • Do a review of concepts that you found difficult to grasp on the first pass
  • Answer mock exam questions(you'll find links in this forum)
  • participate on the forum(at least read what others are saying)
  • If you can squeeze it in, peruse the specs (check the SCWCD links section)
  • Do a final review (use study notes if you're the type)
  • Resist the temptation to study overnight prior to your exams


  • The amount of time you dedicate to each aspect would definitey depend on the peculiarity of your schedule during this period.

    Good thing for you is that our backgrounds are similar and I have also had thirty days for my preparations and hope to write the exam on Jan 3rd. If I pass, then, you should have some encouragement to go ahead with your 30day plan.

    I hope this has been helpful

    Hi,

    I am also preparing for SCWCD and supposed to write by 20th Jan, 2009. I am preparing from SCWCD Sun Certified Web Component Developer by David BridgeWater. Can any one comment on this material so that I will change to some other if necessary.

    If you dedicate your 2 hrs daily for SCWCD, I think you can make it. Once you are confident with the mocks, do find time to take the mocks exams available through net. I found Whizlabs and mocks from TestNow.com very useful. The questions are very much similar to teh real time exam questions. All the Best for your preparation.

    as of scwcd5 the prescribed book...
    There is no "prescribed" book, nor any "official" guide to the exam. You should choose whichever guide seems the most suitable for you from the handful available on the market. Don't just listen to rumours that circulate.
    I want to write scwcd exam, but i have only one month time to do that.
    I just don't see what the rush is! So what if you have a piece of paper that says you're SCWCD because you've crammed all the facts, but you can't write a Web app because you haven't taken the time for the subtleties to actually sink in. Even then you'll have questions to ask yourself about better ways to develop. So I don't see the rush---embarking on the SCWCD journey should be about making yourself a better programmer and Web developer, not about having a certificate at the end.
