Today i cleared the SCWCD 1.5 exam with 81% marks
It may not sound great but considering that i prepared for 15 days only without any previous knowledge of Servlets and JSP, i think its a good effort
I must credit HFSJ(k&b&b) for this success.
I read the whole book once and solved each and every mock question,understanding why i got a particular answer wrong or why i got a particular answer right
What happens that sometimes we get some answers right but the logic which we apply is wrong,so it was a must do
on the last coffee cram exam i got 52%.
but i noticed that i was making mistakes in pattern,security
that was yesterday.I did both the topics in the night.
Now coming to the exam,the time was ample and i did not need to hurry
if you have understood the topic clearly,there is noway you can fail.
no cramming is required(apart from DD elements
One more thing i would like to share is that,your success percentage is directly proportional to the time you spend on the Ranch....
It will certainly help you in clearing your concepts
Revision can be done by the notes of Fredrickshttp://esnault.frederic.free.fr/certification/scwcd_notes.pdf
you should certainly go through it
you can do patterns from http://faq.javaranch.com/java/PeabodyOnScwcdPatterns
infact these links were suggested by the ranchers here and were a great read....
Now i plan to take SCBCD as soon as possible
Best of luck to all those who are preparing
