I cleared the SCDJWS Exam with 88% thanks a lot to java ranch discussion forums it helped me a lot in the preparation for the exam�.
Following are my tips based on my experience��.. I started the preparation with no practical knowledge on web services�
Read the RMH book Cover to Cover for your knowledge of J2EE web services but from the exam perspective Appendix not needed. No question on Webservices.xml and Jaxrpc-mapping file�after good knowledge on concepts�..read MZ notes do not read MZ notes before reading RMH it will be Greek and Latin for you��MZ is very good from the exam perspective�.it can be used as good study material for revision� Chapters 7 and 3 of sun blue prints was also useful. You can also use �Watsh Rajneesh� SCDJWS tutorial notes which is the important extract form RMH and MZ.
Take the mock exam from XYZ.com at least 3 of times so that you get a chance to answer all the questions in the dump.
Then Buy MZ quiz it is really useful�.MZ quiz comes with the questions and answer explanation. First take the quiz with out reading the answer explanation because the previous answer explanation will influence the next question�s answer which defeats the purpose of taking up the mock exam��.
Fortunately I got some of the question from XYZ and MZ mock exam in the real exam also�..
I am planning to take up PMP certification next �.Pls suggest some good study materials to start with�
