Hi All,
I passed SCWCD this morning with 82%.
I am sincerely thankful to Kathy and Bert (for the 2nd time, first one being SCJP exam) and Bryan for writing such a wonderful book. Without this book, I would've never understood the basic concepts of servlets and jsps. Thank you guys once again!!

My lowest score was on the Custom Tag section. There is nothing in the exam thats not covered by HFSJ. I took some mock exams from Whizlabs, but found the exam and software quality to be sub-standard (when compared to other software like SelfTest, which unfortunately doesn't have an exam for SCWCD).

Lay strong emphasis on understanding design patterns. Most questions in this section are of the type 'when to use what'. EL is another important area. Before going, make sure you know that well.

Most importantly, know your XML elements *VERY* well. Example, what are the XML elements you need for configuring authentication, XML elements for listeners, XML elements for filters and so on.

All the best to everyone preparing to take this exam.

That's a great score on a really hard exam.

We're very happy to hear that the book helped.

thanks guys.
keep going with the book kedar. thats really all you need to pass the exam. as i said earlier, know your xml elements very well. maybe 6-7 drag n drop questions on this.i used to get confused a lot at start. read all chapters carefully and give the tests at the end of every chapter. know why an answer is right and why the rest of them are wrong.

if you're comfortable with the book, you'll find the exam very easy.

i got 63% in the mock exam at the end of the book and 82% in the real one. so the rule that you get 20% more in real exam really holds true

all the best.
