Hi I passed the SCWCD exam today only 86%. I was a bit dissapointed as I made a mistake of changing stuff that was right to the wrong answer just before my final submit.

My thoughts on preparing for the exam:
1. The HFSJ book is great and a must read and it was the only book I used. There is some errata so check these out when you buy the book.
I do not agree with the answers to all the mock questions but the questions are good or even of a higher standard than the exam.
2. I used the Enthuware mock exams and they are great. You can find them at There is also some errors on these exams but the discussion form normally sort this out. You also learn a lot of interesting stuff doing the questions that is not in the book but very usefull in your working environment.
3.I only skimmed the servlet and JSP spec on specific topics that I was not clear on.
Well that is my thoughts and good luck to all of you that must still write the exam. Don't go change thing once you have finished the exam and before you submit!!!
