YEY,

Just passed this certification with 73% just one percent above the pass mark!

Quick advice to all taking the exam soon: MEMORIZE the API

I've mainly studied the HF!

thanks to the authors =)

Hey hi..

I am planning to take this exam on 4th November. Did you study only HFJS or any dumps too. Somehow I am so worried about this exam.
Do you mind helping me with more tips and tricks.

Thanks
Prachi

Well It's a really hard exam, at least it was to me :p I've finished the HF final book exam and passed it. Then reviewed the things I've failed then went back to reading those chapters. Re-done the end of chapter review questions. Re-read all the bullet points in the book (they are all marked on the final index) And that was about it.

I would recommend memorizing the API, really knowing all the unimportant to real life details such as where is the X method defined: HttpServletRequest or ServletRequest. Knowing all the details about the attribute names in all the tags. It's hard to say more since if I start thinking about it ALL of the book is in there. And even some things aren't such as how do you access the uri that a request came from if it was directed through a request dispatcher...

Also on the final days (weekend) I've found out that reading this (http://library.nu/docs/FR28H7YTS6/SCWCD%20Exam%20Study%20Kit%20Second%20Edition%3A%20Java%20Web%20Component%20Developer%20Certification) quick exam prep provides a more structured view on all the information.

Let me know if you need anything else mate and Good Luck with it.

Hi,

Did you take the practice tests by Pearson Vue(the new vendor via which you can take up these exams)? How are they and are they really helpful ?

Thanks

I did not. "I" (my company) bought the practice exams specified by the oracle certification website and those plus the end of the book one were the only practice exams I did.

I did find the practice exams a bit easier than the actual exam.
