This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I did the SCJP exam last friday (May, 2nd) and passed with 81% I like to thank the people of JavaRanch and all JavaRanch members who made this forum useful for others. I also like to thank my boyfriend for his support. My Study Notes

I like to continue with SCWCD. Where can I find more information about mock exams for this exam?
I used SCWCD Exam Study Kit of Hanumanth Deshmukh. Very good book, easy to read with some schemes. Each chapter has mock tests. The CD has 4 more mock tests with an exam simulator like the real exam. The exam simulator is written in Java and is better than any other simulator I have seen so far. These test are very similar to the real exam. This is all I did to prepare for the exam. My score on the exam was a few points above the highest score on the mock tests. I recommend NetBeans as IDE as it has built-in support for Tomcat. Debugging servlets and JSP is as easy as a desktop Java program. Furthermore there is built-in support for JSP taglibs, which is an important subject of SCWCD.
