Well firstly i finished scjp 1.6 with a 66% score.

I am planning to take up this SCWCD 1.5 now and i have at present HEAD FIRST SERVLETS AND JSP with me. Is this enough to get a good score in the exam or do i need something more.

and usually how long would a normal person need to prepare for this exam. I am running to a deadline here and i have time like till maybe MARCH 15TH to write this exam.

Would that be ample time considering i will read for like atleast 2 hours each weekday and like probably a total of 10 hours on weekends.

How would the exam be in terms of relative difficulty with SCJP and how much HTML knowledge do i need because i really dont know any HTML.

Thanks a lot.

Praveenram, first of all congratulations on passing SCJP. You can find most information about SCWCD in the ScwcdLinks and ScwcdFaq. The Head First Servlets and JSP (HFSJ) book is a very good book for preparation for SCWCD. Along with it you should do some mock exams (find them in ScwcdLinks). Your target for SCWCD is around 1 month with 2 hours in weekdays. IMHO, this is not enough. Generally people take about 2 months to prepare for the exam. Since you don't seem to have much knowledge about web applications (guessing from the fact that you don't know HTML), so you should at least prepare for 2 months...
