Hi guys...,

Had a crack at SCWCD 5 today and cleared it with 98%. Out of the given 69 question i had answered 68 correctly.

I found very few errors in the exam but they were of kind which were not effecting the answer. For example if there was a syntax error in the question's program then there was no option in the given options which said 'syntax error'.
So that is something not to worry about.

I owe a lot to javaranch because of which I met so nice people who spared their time and brain in order to clear my doubts just to name a few would be Frits Walraven , Ankit Garg , Christophe Verré . Thanks to all others as well for their replies.

Wow!..

So many wishes..! thank you , thank you so much everyone.

What is next on the certification menu?


I don't know, this was something I was going to ask you only. I want to develop web based applications using J2EE when I join any company as a software engineer. There I want to work for 2-3 years on J2EE and then will go for MS/ME later.

Which do you think I shall go for?(SCBCD or SCDJWS or IBM Cert J2EE developer something or shall I wait for the beta exams oracle is testing to be converted to real exams?

Congrates! If possible, please share your preperation info.

hmm.. my preparation info, well I prepared in an unmanaged way. But I have some suggestions from the experience I got in preparing and attempting the SCWCD exam-

Do head first twice , on your second attempt solve the niko's mock exam topic wise.

Do David bridgewater or scwcd exam study kit or Frits notes once after that.

then go on to mocks , solve as many mocks as you can, when you have doubt in a question then search the specs/book, if doubt persists search javaranch forum and other google searches, if it still persists then create a new topic on scwcd forum.

Many mock questions are ambiguous and some are useless just don't get worried by them.

Do not judge yourself by HF 2nd edition final mock exam completely. i had scored only 60% and had attempted it around 3 days before the real one. It has many errors check the errata as well.

Another thing I had solved mainly 1.4 exams only and a very few 1.5 mocks. I did not find the real exam very performance based, by my opinion it was like 1.4 mocks only.

all the best

Congrats !! WOW

Can you suggest some mocks which simulate the real exam for e.g. in SCJP there were Kathy Sierra master exams and Examlab kit.They were just like the online exam , questions from diff topics were mixed together and we had to complete the exam in a specific time duration. It will be of great help.

Hi Simran,

The Enthuware Simulator mocks will do this for you, they have practice tests which are pretty close to the real exam.Atleast you must do the tough and very tough exams of it because that will broaden your mind.(After that the hard questions get repeated in the practice tests which i think shall be fixed by enthuware people.)

Except that Marcus exams are also of this type only. You can try the 3 practice tests and could test your score.

regards,
Parth

Congrats for such a good score

Now, I have a query, I passed my scwcd 1.5 exam on 7th Sep,10 but on logging into the certmanager.net/sun i cant find my status as certified in SCWCD; though in history section i could see in EVENTS that i have passed the Exam 310-083 and then ENROLLED in "Oracle Certified Professional, Java EE 5 Web Component Developer" but its nowhere written certified in SCWCD/ OCWCD. I used the same prometric id for both the scjp i passed earlier n this scwcd, so thats definately not an issue.

Is your account(on certmanager) showing you up as certified or you are also facing the same trouble?

Kindly help me.

Hi Gaurav,

Congrats to you to ..

It is not the same with me , in my home page on certmanager.net/sun.

It is shown in current certifications
Program Status Certification Date
Sun Certified Web Component Developer for the Java Platform, EE 5 (SAI) certified 08/25/2010
Sun Certified Programmer for the Java Platform, SE 6 certified 02/28/2009

And I have received the certificate from sun as well. And in my history section it is not shown that
ENROLLED in "Oracle Certified Professional, Java EE 5 Web Component Developer"

I think it is like this because after 2nd sept there is no such thing as Sun Certified now you are oracle certified.
since you gave the exam after 2nd sept, you will be receiving an Oracle Certificate so I think you have to login to the Oracle Site somewhere, but I do not know how is that done.
