I am a SCJP 1.4 since April, and now a SCMAD 1.0 as for... mm.. November; and the idea is to be a SCWCD by December... by the way, the grades (not that I am all that proud of them but a pass is a pass) are:

SCJP - 88
SCMAD - 72

Cheers!

Of course!

I read Sathya's notes; Knudsen's book (Wireless Java <- Good for UI and Game); a couple of JSRs (for JTWI, MIDP, CLDC, WMA and MMAPI) and I had to stop using Eclipse to program (I think is much better to program without any help when preparing for certifications because of all the errors and exceptions you get; specially since you'll be asked to recognize them).

I also used the free mock exam at: http://www.j2mecertification.com to get an idea of what sections I needed to prepare more.

I think that's about it.... also, keep it together before and during the exam! There's nothing worst than being nervous during the exam.

Hope this can help... by the way; any pointers for the SCWCD 1.4? I�m taking it next wednesday (December first)� I�ve already gone through the head first book (best IT book I ever read! ) but still� what should I focus on? Anyone?

Well, that's the only one resource that you need for the exam... I did Beta exam of SCWCD 1.4... So I have any idea about exam specific books like that... But HF EJB is the only resource that I use to prepare for the exam... I believe HF Servlets and JSP would follow the same way as HF EJB... Hope it helps...

Anyway, thanks for sharing your exam experience with us...
