Today i passed my exam and i'm also happy of my score.
I also want to make some consideration about the exam end the preparation material i used.
Compared with the SCJP exam i think that scwcd questions may seem easier but you are required to remember more things( method names xml configuration tags and so on).
I studied on Manning's SCWCD exam study kit (second edition) but i'm not satisfied of this book.
I found many errors and not all topic are covered in deep. For instance i found questions on war file and on web.xml not covered in that book (Questions on welcome file, ejb reference, error page and so on).
I studied EL, JSTL, Security, TagFiles also on sun specification
JSP2.0 Spec.
Servlet2.4 Spec.
For exam training i used Enthuware simulator that is good but less than Whizlab's simulator that i used for my SCJP exam. (Whizlabs simulator is more expensive but thougher than real exam while Enthuware is closer to the real exam but i found some error.)
If you have any other question post me it and i'll answer you.
Finally i want to thank all of us because reading your topics improved my preparation.

How well do u have to study
1) the JSP2.0 specs - which is some 480 pages
2) the servlet2.4 specs - which is 330 pages
I guess my question is do we have to spend a lot of time reading it (atleast twice) or just brush through it once and understand the fundamentals?

I agree. Here's the link:
