Hi Guys,
Passed the exam yesterday, i started reviewing for the exam since June 2002 (off and on), i got tired of reviewing since my job always get on the way, so i decided to register for the exam .. one week before..... :-).
Here are my tips:
1. Get the copy of SCWCD exam kit by Manning.
2. JWebPlus - passed all the exam - mostly i only got 80%
3. While studying the SCWCD exam kit, supplement it with Velmurugan SCWCD notes and Alx Dark SCWCD notes.
4. Read the quick preparation guide of SCWCD exam kit by manning the night before the exam.
5. Register for the exam 1-2 weeks before - it will help you alot to be serious in reviewing for the exam :-).
6. Don't kill yourself in memorizing those API and DD, just a clear understanding will do.
7. Drink caffeinated drinks while reviewing and before the exam :-)
8. Have a good night sleep.
9. Arrive in the exam center 5-10 mins before the exam.
10. Javaranch is the best one stop center for Java Certification.
I don't have a prior experience in JSP and Servlet, currently i'm thinking to do some web app like mail2web.
Thanks and Best Regards,
Roy

Hi Linda,
I think the answer should be A and C.
B is incorrect the path can be absolute and relative
C is correct, when the browser w/o redirect capability, method writes a short response body that contains a hyperlink to the new location.
Best Regards,
Roy

Sa aking kapwa Filipino, isa rin akong SCJP 1.2 at SCJP 1.4, isang baguhan din sa larangan ng Java, at ako rin ay nangangarap na magkaroon ng Trabaho sa larangan ng Java, kahit ang sweldo ay kakarampot, ako po ay nasa labas ng bansa, at na linya sa IT, ang aking gawain ay IVR para sa Call Center, kahit malaki ang kinikita ko dito, hindi po ako kuntento kaya pinursige kong mag-aral ng Java at sa darating na Desyembre ako po ay kukuha ng SCWCD exam.
Kung may alam po kayong trabaho sa larangan ng Java sana po tulungan ninyo ho ako.
very loose english translation:
To my Filipino fellows, i'm also a newbie in Java but is SCJP 1.2 and SCJP 1.4, and currently i'm looking for Java Jobs also even the salary is low, i'm currently in a overseas project for call center application and earning a modest, but i'm not satisfied on my current job that's why i pursued to study Java and this coming December i'm going to write the SCWCD exam.
If you knew any Java Jobs available, please help me.

PS: I Never worked in IT, have been studying from home so have not had the luxury of real life Java experience like some others.



Don't loose hope, keep trying.

Hi Sulekha,
I had the same problem before, my first name is wrong.

This an excerpt from FAQ of Sun's Certmanager:
" Question:
How can I change the spelling of my name in the database and on my Certificate?
Answer:
While you are able to change your address, phone number, email address etc in our database you are not able to change your name.
To do this please send the following information to correspondence@prometric.com
How name currently appears:
How name should be fixed:
Student ID number:"
Don't worry once you email your problem to correspondence@prometric.com, they will reply ASAP.. if you're lucky or 3-4 weeks and you can see the changes in the certmanager and they will going to send you another certificate with another SCJP Pin.. COOL.
Best Regards,
Roy

I just passed my scjp last week. I still cannot decide what is the next certificate I want to take now . I would like to ask a few quetions here:
1)SCJD and SCWCD, which one would be more demanded in the market now?
2)will the certificate of the SCJD shows how long you took to complete the project?
3)is the SCEA look more attractive to employer?
Any other suggestion is welcome. My job is not related to any java stuff currently, the purpose of taking all these cert is that I hope all these certs could help me to get a more interesting job, may be a java developer later, and may be a software analyst in future.


We have same situation, My job is not related to java..but it still progamming.. but i really love java.. i passed the SCJP 1.2 and SCJP 1.4 and currently studying for SCWCD

But it can't mean that your "certs are more up to date" - because the certification for 1.2 says "Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform" and the certification for the 1.4 version says "Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform".
And if you took the exam twice, once in each version, it is not really something that is even verifiable. The pieces of paper say the exact same thing.
Maybe he took it for personal reasons. But from my point of view it is like getting your bachelors degree in computer science. Why do the whole thing twice? You only get credit and get recognized for ONE degree.


Simon is right, the certification, IMHO in this fast technology pace, we need to keep up.
I'm lucky that i was given a chance to do the 1.4 for free, and i know lot of ranchers are 1.2 and 1.4 certified.
Currently i'm preparing for the SCWCD exam, although i'm not doing java in my current job, i love the languange compare to the one that i'm using.
I'm involved in telecommunication business which my primary task is IVR system, and looking forward to do java in near future.
I know this is not related to thet thread... is there anybody out there that use JTapi?
IMHO the SCWCD exam kit book is quite good one, i'm a SCJP 1.2 and 1.4 and i don't have any background in servlet and jsp, i have learn this technology from the SCWCD exam kit, although i have the SCWCD exam kit, i have ordered the more servlets and jsp from the amazon, and currently i'm comparing both, and my favorite is the SCWCD exam kit, since the chapters are based on the SCWCD objectives.
Actually i little get annoyed in more servlets and jsp when the author says that refer to the core servlets and jsp book chapter x, although from the preface it said that this is a sequel.
Currently, i'm preparing for the SCWCD exam and using the manning book as the main book and mpore servlets as supplement.
In conclusion i give the SCWCD exam kit 9.5/10 rating, is there anybody out there that that has the sybex and manning scwcd book?, could you please give some comment on both book?
