Thank you so much guys.

As promised, here is how I prepared and some tips.

Read HFSJ once along with the specification.

Did not do extensive coding but enough to clear doubts.

Read HFSJ second time along with the specification and while in the middle of the second iteration, God blessed me with a Baby Boy.

Studied the API (Fredric Esnault's API notes),web.xml elements and tld file elements.

Took Marcus Green Mock Exam, JavaBeat's and Nicko's mock questions. The sequence allowed me to identify my weak/gray areas. Although some questions in the mentioned sequence had wrong questions but it did help me in assessing my understanding of the concepts.

Took the Mock Exam at the end of HFSJ and scored 78.3 %. Although the exam at the end of HFSJ was harder than the real Exam.

Bought Enthuware's JWeb+ which helped a lot with the concepts.

And finally, gave the exam.The exam was not that hard but be ready for surprises.Make sure you study the web.xml elements and the API methods even if they are not mentioned in HFSJ. Don't let questions with big descriptions throw you off. There is no need to panic. Just read carefully. The simplest of concepts will make you scratch your head.So don'y under estimate simple concepts.

What Am I going to do next, Have no idea. SCBCD was in the queue but Spring Framework (which I'm already using) is dominant over EJBs. Not interested in Web Services but thinking of SCJD and finally will go for SCEA exam. I don't know how EJBs will turn out and what weight will SCBCD have in the future.But if they are getting recognition, then I'll go for SCBCD as well. Any suggestions are welcome and will be highly appreciated.

Good Luck to all future SCWCD exam takers.

Kind Regards.
Hasnain Javed Khan.
