Finally, I have cleared the SCWCD 1.4 exam with 89%. Just missed the 90% mark by a question. Still, I am happy and satisfied by my score. Preparation time was around a month (not dedicated).
I did not do well in the category "The Servlet Techonology Model" which I had prepared well and was very confident of doing well. Rest all were ok.
Thanks to Marc Peabodys' notes on design pattens which got me 100%
. Also, thanks to all ranchers who have helped me in clearing my queries on the forum.
The only book I refered to was HFSJ. I believe its a fantastic book to get a good understanding of concepts, to pass the exam and also to get a good score.
Also, I did some mocks (although very few) like j2eecertificate.com and Marcus Greens' mock exams.
