Hello All.
I have started preparing for SCWCD 5 and was wondering how much of the Specs can help in preparation and what will be the % (roughly) of the number of questions on the exam related to the Specs ?
Waiting for a favorable reply.Thanks in advance.
kind Regards.
Hasnain.

I'd guess that if you haven't read the specs at least once and understood them, then you're on shaky ground as far as the exam (and developing Java web apps) goes.

Hmmm... in the FAQ section, it's mentioned to just skim through it !!
What would be the best way to go through it ? read the spec corresponding to the chapter (exam objective) in HF book ?

Kind Regrads.

You don't need to read it if you want to pass SCWCD - of course it will be good thing, but it is not necessary.

If you really want to read it, read it after you read for example HF.

Well the reason I asked for reading the spec is that some mock questions at the end of the chapters in HF has questions which could be answered by reading the specs (there are no details/material in the HF chapters for those questions).

Kind Regards.

I think that without being VERY familiar with Servlet 2.4, JSP 2.0, and JSTL 1.1 specifications, you would be at a disadvantage when either taking the test or working in the field.

However, these documents can be cryptic...much like consulting the "oracle at delphi"...so you should also install a servlet engine (like tomcat) and do some experimenting with code.
