Well, I didn't quite manage to get through this easily with a perfect score in 9 1/2 minutes like everybody else, but I passed
Some lessons learned during my whopping ten-day preparation:
1. Take more than 10 days.
2. I read Professional SCWCD Certification - Wrox. It stinks.
3. I took a few mock exams: Sun's practice exam - 80%, Eduardo Cobian's SCWCD Test - 36% (that's no typo), and Anand Chawla's Mock Exam - 85%.
4. Eduardo Cobian's mock exam also stinks.
5. Take it anyways
All in all though - a good experience. It's a bit hard to get your hands on good (free) material for preparing for this exam though. It's not like studying for the SCJP where you have a million mock exam questions, and a hundred books to choose from at Borders.
Oh -- I did use some of the links on the SCWCD links page here (javaranch), which were a huge help, especially the web-app dtd diagram by somebody.

well done - the exam takes a lot of studying, I bet some people with perfect scores are understating the amount of work involved.
