On Wednesday 11th of August I passed for my exam of SCDJWS 5 (cx-310-230). I answered 37 of 65 (score 57%) questions correctly. The passing score was 42 %. Most questions where theoretically and were about choosing the two best options. There was one drag-and-drop question. Though the questions were not easy, I'm glad I succeed to pass the exam. javascript:emoticon('');

Here are some points I want to share with you about my preparation.

I read the following books and other readings:
- J2EE Web Services, Richard Monson-Haefel (RMH), only the relevant parts
- Java Web Services Up and Running, Martin Kalin
- SCDJWS 5 Study Notes, Ivan A Krizsan
- SCDJWS 5.0 Study Guide, Mikalai Zaikin
- SCDJWS 5.0 Quiz, Mikalai Zaikin, 108 questions
- website Java Black Belt – Web Services – Basics beta questions: http://www.blackbeltfactory.com/QuestionnaireDefDisplay.wwa?questPublicId=01525 (not so good, beta questions)

It is important to read also the relevant tutorials of: JAXR, JAXB, JAXP and SAAJ.

My total preparation time for this exam was about 180 hours spread over 6 months.

I followed this SCDJWS forum for more than one year and I learned a lot about from the questions, answers and other experiences.

Be Lise,
Netherlands,
SCJP 1.4, SCWCD 5 and SCDJWS 5.

Congratulations

Perhaps you can give me a short answer about the following two questions:
- How was Mikalai Zaikin Quiz ? Was is harder or easier as the real exam questions?
- Which were the topics (Exam objectivs) which had a deeper coverage as you thought it before?

Best regards,
Christian

Here are my answers:
- "Mikalai Zaikin Quiz" was comparable with the real exam. Not harder or easier. The first time I scored 54% and my exam score was 57%. The exam questions of Sun were some times harder, caused by the indirect and subtle way of the question and answers. Choosing the two most correct options is not always obvious. You must read the questions and answers carefully, stay calm and think logically. It is important to practice as much as possible questions. Sun has 48 practice questions you could try. I didn't use them because I found them too expensive in the Netherlands (more then $ 120)
- The security questions (about 3 or 4) I found harder. One question was about something I hadn't seen or read before.
