I passed SCJP1.4, SCBCD and most probably might even clear SCWCD Beta, waiting for result, but I somehow have a feeling, might most probably make it.
I took all these exams in just a span of 40 days, and cleared them, hoping that even SCWCD gets through ,
. I started of everything from scratch, I never knew EJB, Servlet, JSP
, But was pretty strong in Java, I knew Java very well,infact excellent and so that gave me the confidence to take up the 3 exams, one after the other in a gap of 2 weeks between each.
I want to thank the following people for there support and help, without which I could not have made it.......
1. WHIZLABS, I took the simulators for all the above mentioned 3 exams, and really this simulator rocks, I really liked each and every test, they really have put in a lot of efforts to frame the questions, Most of there practice exams, I rate it tougher than the actual exam. I really recommend this simulator to one and all to take this simulator for those of you who want to take the exam , to take the exam 100% confidently, without worrying about loosing $150. If you do well in there exams, there is no doubt of failing in the real exam. Mr Pradeep Chopra, you have really done a great job, I wish you maintain the same quality in future.
2. Head first EJB book: This book simply rocks. The best book I have ever read in my life so far. This book, in fact i could say it has a comic, all the complex topics are explained in such a beautiful , simple and extraordinary way, no more words are coming out of my mouth to praise this comic. hats off to Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates. I was so confident of this book, it covered all the topics of the exam, I did not even bother to read the specification's.
3. SCWCD study kit by Hanumanth Deshmukh and Jignesh Malavia, this is also a good book, but I will comment on this book, after clearing the exam.......
I never read the specifications of any of these exams, I had complete faith in all the above mentioned books and whizlabs and knew that would take me through.........
Will be taking IBM 484 on this tuesday, the feb 10th, since I got a free voucher, but without much confidence this time because no whizlabs
IBM 484 whizlabs product is till not released. Hope to clear it, without thier excellent support this time.
