Hello Ranchers,

I just finished this morning the "1Z0-899 Java Platform, EE 6 Web Component Developer Certified Expert " Exam with a score of 96%.

I decided to write my preparation story on this Forum as soon as I get my certification because, honestly, I wouldn't be able to do it without your Help, Thank you ALL Brothers and Sisters ! So here we go

At first, I began with "OCEJWCD Study Companion 3rd Edition (formerly SCWCD Study Companion) by Charles Lyons". Just so you know, I am a Java Developer but I don't have any knowledge in Java EE plateforme, as I work in plugin-development (Eclipse RCP). So, it was very difficult for me to grasp the concepts from this book. I don't know if it's just me but It is very heavy to read and take a lot of stuff as understood when it could have put more explanation.
I read it all and then passed the first and second exam from enthuware and i scored 49% and 61% :-(

It was clear that i wasn't ready for Test Mocks yet, so I decided to go for Head First Servlets and JSP. A VERY VERY GOOD BOOK, I recommed it for every beginner because it explains every point in the most simple way possible. Plus you can code the examples and believe me it helps a lot.

After HF, I re-read specific chapters from Charles Lyons' book: Chapters from 8 to 12 and chapter about Security.

I want to thank "Piotr Nowicki" for his amazing exam (you can find the link in SCWCDLinks), it helps a lot in preparing the new topics of J2EE 6 like Asynchronous Requests, annotations...

Finally, ENTHUWARE. This is the best 20$ that I ever spent. It IS the best place to prepare for this exam. It simulates the exam in such a perfect way, it tests you in every aspect and every objective of the exam and It is slightly difficult So if you're getting good scores in Enthuware you will get a GREAT score in the real exam.
My results were as follow:
Test 1: Before HF 61%, After HF: 93%
Test 2: Before HF 49%, After HF: 86%
Test 3: 81%
Test 4: 81%
Test 5: 72%
Test 6: 75%
Test 7: 77%
Test 8: 79%
Test 9: 72%
Final Test Exam: 85%

I want to thank you Ranchers for your help and for the gyus who posted their stories. I want to thank Charles Lyons for his book, tough but great. Bryan Basham, Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates for their AMAZING book HF. And you guys in Enthuware, you ROCK !

Hope this helps other people!! Good luck to everyone preparing/taking the test!!
PS: Sorry for my bad English It's not even my second language :p

Peace,
Amine.
