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.
Thanks to Frederick, Bert, Marc, Mani, Veena, Scott, Vivek, Vishwas, Sanjay, Marcus, Patrick, Mikalai, Krishna, Wise, Marcelo, Joyce and everyone else on the java ranch for their help and advice. I cleared SCWCD with 88%. I had cleared the SCJP 1.4 (81%) a month back. For SCWCD I had read HFSJ, Professional Java Server Programming (WROX publishers) Servlet and JSP specs and had done the whizlab mock exams. I had made my notes but had refered to notes from the SCWCD links page as well. The notes from Frederic were priceless and really helped me revise. I made only 59% on the final mock exam in HFSJ so I was not all that confident. The questions in the exam are not as easy as I expected . I lost many points in tag libraries, standard actions and Custom tags even though I had spent extra time on the topics. Best of Luck to everyone else preparing for the exam.

Thanks Pat, Nizar and Mikalai. I am currently looking at Struts (Struts Cookbook and the Struts Complete Reference guide). My work experience has been mostly in Core Java API so everything is new to me as of now. I intend to take the SCBCD exam maybe at the end of april (but that very much depends upon my job workload )
