I passed SCWCD exam yesterday with 97% (missed 2 questions one on EL and one on deployment).
I would like to thank first and foremost Kathy, Bert and Bryan for wonderful book called Head First Servlets and JSP. Also enthuware for JWebPlus exam simulator.
I agree with Connie KY Leung, I also found exam difficult and answers were really close on many questions.
Regarding preparation I prepared from HFSJ. Fredrick Esnault's servlet spec summary I read many times, also added few more points after going through servlet specifications myself. (Thanks a ton Fredrick).
I was only able to give 4 mock tests of Enthuware because of time constraints. I tried other mocks like Marcus Green (got 97% in final quiz of 69 questions), j2eecertificate, javaranch, jdiscuss and others. Thanks a lot Marcus for those quiz on SCWCD.
Special thanks to Peabody for Patterns and Jothi Shankar Kumar Sankararaj for hints. Also thanks to Niranjan who gave me his mock exam score sheet which was helpful.
I was slightly nervous and tensed because 1) I was not able to give all mocks from Enthuware, 2) I was not able to read many notes which I collected from many people, 3) I did not visit forums regularly (in fact I visited forum just once or twice in last week, but I thank scwcd links page and ranchers for their notes, you all have done wonderful and brilliant job in preparing notes and sharing with people). 4) There are enough discrepancies in mocks (version problem mocks as per 2.3 and also other errors in mocks). So to be sure one needs to read (when required specs, API) and practice also to be 100% convinced. Because of time limitation I was unable to try few things.
Got around 86% in HFSJ final mock exam.
That is it, suggest me what to do next? I have 1 project experience in struts (small one 2 month project). I read sturts few months back.
What to do next EJB (if yes which version) or AJAX or struts or something else?
