This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Today i passed out scwcd with 86%.The exam was not very tough.I can say only 20% of the questions were tough rest u can do it easily if u have studied HFS book thoroughly.I can say i studied that book thrice.Ofcourse u cannot remember all the details in the book when u read it for the first time.But when i read the book for the third time i was able to find that i couldremember almost all the details from the book. I prepared for almost 3 months not full time maybe abt 3hrs per day.
i would like to share my views about the real exam here: Pay attention to the API's given in the book coz u do have questions in the real exam from the API. EL expressions were not very tough do not worry Ofcourse JSTL tag libraries were not that easy unless u have digested all the details given in the HFS book in JSTL chapter. There were drag and drop questions in the exam abt 3 Design pattern questions were very easy.
In nutshell i can say the tough questions were distributed in many of the objectives.But rest were very easy.Try to score above 85% in the mock exams coz when i was preparing my mock exam results were between 75% to 85% ..so now u know how much would that fetch u in your real exam.
Could you please tell me what is difficulty level if u take the exam second time?

u mean the real exam itself for the second time...i donot think there will be any necessity for the second attempt as it's easy to pass for the first time itself.Im not hurting anyone.. this what i feel after attending the real exam. But if u r attempting for the second time then u should definetly feel it should be easy for u.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
