Passed the SCWCD 1.4 : Ouch !

Hi there,

Kind of a silent user but thanks to this site, I just passed the exam !
I think also that I`m can be proud to be the one, and only one with the... lowest score : 73%.

What a shame ! Sorry people... with all your 90-100% notes, looks like I'm a kind of a looser !

I`ve decided 2 weeks ago to take this exam. It's been around almost 2 years that I'm doing little Servlets & JSP around. I took a ordinary book for certification (Sun Certification Training Guide (310-080): Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) Web Component Developer by Alain Trottier) and I DO NOT recommend it. I know it is hard to write a good book but I'm sorry, this book got errors and skip a lot of details at the end. Thanks A LOT to Marty Hall with is book "More Servlets & JSP", a really GREAT book.

I know I can`t talk about the exam but ... ouch ! Really theorical exam. I found so hard to find good reference to pass the exam (except for the SCJP).

I'm planning to get an other exam. Any suggestions ? Most important, what are the good books related to the SCBCD or SCDJWS ? Is Sybex a good book for the SCJD exam ?

Last question, with J2SE 1.5, should it be better for me to wait for next exams on SCJD ? What will happen for someone who is SCJP 1.2 to convert from 1.2 to 1.5 ?

Lots of questions ! heheheh

Don't worry!
My congratulations!

Pass is a pass!

You know material enough to be certified. Yes, there are more "holes" in your knowledge than other guys from this forums has, but still.

Concratulations

You are not a looser, you are a winner.

I think there are many people failing the certification, but they will
never post it. It's important to understand the concepts, it's not so important to know the exactly syntax. I know some people failing the SCJP certification at first time, but they are realy good programmers.

I will take the SCWCD 1.4 in 9 days. I will be happy if I have 73%.

On 73% for SCWCD
You're not a loser at all, you're just very brave and honest. Most people who get under 80% on any of these certs are afraid to post here. It's a bit like the olympics, "he had to settle for silver". If I got any medal in any sport, anywhere, I certainly wouldn't be "settling for silver", I'd be celebrating.

The losers are the people with 79% on SCJP who won't post.

On SCJD 1.4
Do the SCJD now while there is lots of help available on the 1.4 version. In industry most shops are still using 1.3.

Keep up the good work, and good luck.
