This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
Glad to inform you all that I've cleared SCWCD exam last week.My sincere appreciation & thanks to Kathy,Bert & Bryan for bringing out such a wonderful book(ofcourse it is..HFSJ!!) which really helped a lot..not only to pass the exam but also understand & get used with the concepts easily.Also I thank all ranchers who helped a lot by clearing the queries whenever I raised.Thanks a lot guys!.
I have two suggestions to our esteemed authors of HFSJ.
1. HFSJ book is really wonderful.But i feel it would be very nice if the book comes along with a CD(like the one we've got for Java certification study guide).HFSJ final mock exam is good.I dont deny that.But i feel that no of mock exams available for SCWCD is lesser than the ones for SCJP. So it will give us good practice to face the real one.
2. I would like to see a book for Web services certification also from you ppl in the near future.Any plans on that?.
Now,to all SCWCD aspirants,I would suggest to read HFSJ thoroughly..make sure u understand all the concepts.For mock exams you can search in SCWCD links and also there are many posts available for those links.I would encourage you guys to post as many doubts u get to javaranch & also attempt to answer atleast some of the doubts already posted there by some one.This would,atleast to some extent,boost your confidence level.I feel this would be the best way to learn(by helping others to learn) and always believe in that.
All the very best to all ranchers who are going take SCWCD exam in the future..!!!
p.s : if u have any more queries related to SCWCD exam..plz post the same.
We're glad the book helped. Thanks for the suggestions, it will soon be time for us to work on he Servlets, so we appreciate your ideas. As far as the Web Services exam goes, we don't have plans to work on that exam. We recommend Richard Monson Haefel's book.
