I passed the exam today with 92%.
I had been aiming for a perfect score, but the exam turned out to be not quite as easy as I expected.
The simple questions were just that.. really simple, but there were some that had me thinking a lot.

Came home, and checked the HFSJ book. Turns out that some of the ones I got wrong were already covered in the book.
Guess I should have read it one more time!

I used the HFSJ book (read that twice and made notes), and looked through the specs briefly. I also went through the notes by Mikalai Zaikin once.
Did mocks from both editions of the HFSJ book, and the Enthuware mocks.
The difficulty level of the real exam was very close to the Enthuware mocks.

My tips:

  • Read the HFSJ book, and look for possible questions everywhere. Including those 'There are no dumb questions..' and the other comment thingies scrawled on the pages.
  • Check out the generated classes for JSP and Tag files when you try out examples. It helps in figuring out how jsp:useBean, EL, Tag attributes and scriptlets can be used together.
  • Make sure you know the API well (memorize if you have to), and learn the deployment descriptor XSD structure throughly.These kind of questions are the simplest to score off, but its also easy to get them wrong
