although I already bought HFSJ(SCWCD) book but I am yet undecided for what should I go for(I considered SCMAD , SCWCD) and I don't really know anything about exam, and as a 3rd year engg. college student I mainly focus on this exam to enhance my CV, I want to know few questions
1. how much did it take to pass exam, I know swing and passed SCJP exam with 86%(I am not bragging , but just want to show where I stand) , I got nearly 4-5 months time in which we have everything going after(like semester exams , placements, competitive examinations), I know Java pretty well and had already designed some of small GUI apps , Do I have a chance to pass exam in say two months.
2. what should be better for me (for job perspectives ) , an SCJD or SCWCD(considering the limited time I have)
I have submitted this question here because I think ranchers of SCJD or SCWCD may be biased towards their exam, sorry if you're not.

It's always good to learn new things!
To suggest on your case, need to know what kind of jobs you want to get.
SCWCD would add the flavor on your CV of you know the essential Servlet and JSP knowledge which are the server side technologies.
But I guess just having SCWCD won't go straight to get a job.
and SCJD would give the interviewer the impression of you know the advanced knowledge of designing the standalone Java application and
you are able to determine the proper option when having multiple options to approach the problem solving.
The experience I got through studying for SCJD for my case is very valuable. it can be adopted on any kind of software design and development.
I can utilize it on various topics, like system design, coding standard, Object oriented way of thinking, testing automation, deployment automation, design decision.
The knowledge I got from SCWED study is only basic things, that I realized after I had worked as a Sevlet programmer for a couple of years.
(But surely knowing more is the better for anything!)
But 1 year time has taken for me to pass the SCJD exam, on the other hand, 3 months time for SCWCD.
(I was having full time job while studying for both certs, so the amount of time won't be applicable for your case.)
Well, that's all my thought, ask me please if you have any more questions.
Good luck with your beautiful CV building to lead your goal!
