Dear All: Last week I passed SCWCD with a score of 96%. Thanks to JavaRanch for providing the valuable information/links/mock exams, and to all the contributors for sharing your notes. Here's some information about my preparation for your reference: . read Inside Servlet: very good, accurate. . read Core Servlet and Server Pages by Marty Hall: good, some arithmetic coding too complicated, some content outdated. . read specifications and Servlet/JSP API-DOC . read More Servlet and Server Pages : good book with good examples . read Jason Hunter's Servlet book, 2nd Ed: real classic . review with Deployment Descriptor aid by Ersin Eser: very good architecture diagram . . read Advanced JavaServer Pages, 1st ed, by David M. Geary, an authority on JSP. Nice, however, some content outdated. . read Miftahkhan's notes, Ken's notes. . read Core J2ee Patterns: nice . practice with all mock exams at javaranch and links ,and jdiscuss. No question is outside the objectives. I had 11 minutes left for review 8 Marked questions, and corrcted 1. I had no more time to review all other questions. I lost 1 in Servlet Model and 1 in Server-side exception. I highly recommend jdiscuss. It’s free, valuable, and similar to the real exam. There are 120 questions. If you can pass them above 80% in the first time and have a through grasp of each question, you may probably pass through the exam with a high score. Best wishes for everybody. Thanks again for you all.
