Passed SCWCD 5 with 95%

Hello Everyone,

I cleared SCWCD 5 with 95% yesterday...

I read HFSJ(1.4) book. I felt the exam was tough compared to the mock exams available in the HFSJ(1.4) book and also on the net. Most of the questions are lengthy and tricky. It is a must to go through the spec and the APIs thoroughly to answer some of the questions. HFSJ(1.4) does not cover all the JSTL core tags and Deployment Descriptor elements that will be seen in the exam. There were more questions on Web App Deployment.

Good Luck,
Sowmya

The objectives for 1.4 and 1.5 are same. The main difference between 1.4 and 1.5 exams is, 1.5 exam is more performance based. The questions are not straight forward and you need to evaluate a complex scenario to answer some questions. So I read HFSJ 1.4 which I already had and gone through the Servlet 2.4 and JSP 2.0 spec for the things which are not covered in HFSJ 1.4. You should know all the Deployment Descriptor Elements, JSTL tags, directives, standard actions etc which are in the spec and not covered in HFSJ 1.4. The new second edition of HF might be covering these.

I agree with you. The new exam scwd 1.5 is a bit difficult than I expected especially for questions regarding web application security and tag handler. You have to be able to memorize a lot but also to get a deep understandings of the topics. There are fewer drag and drop questions. Really, HFSJ is really a very very good book but it's not enough.

I'll take the test in 10 days but I don't feel enough prepared. I get very different percentages depending on the mock I'm taking. Have you ever calculated your on HFSJ mock? If yes, could you please tell it?

Thanks in advance,
Francesco.

I have not looked at HFSJ 1.5 book. I read only HFSJ 1.4, and took some mock tests available on the net.

I didn't take the mock exam in HFSJ seriously. I just took it at the last moment and got 75%. But I felt I could have done a lot better because most of the questions which I answered wrong are very very easy ones which I overlooked and could have corrected if I checked them once again. But the real exam was very tough compared to the mock exam in HFSJ 1.4 and also those on the net.

I took it the night before the exam and got a 58%, but a 92% on the actual test (the upgrade version 310-84).
When I took the first test (the 1.4 version, 310-81), I took it the morning before and got a similar score and it terrified me, but I passed the actual exam then. For me, at least, it was a bad indication of what I know.

On the other hand, I have also heard of many people who found the score to be really accurate.

What I found it VERY useful for was highlighting the areass that I needed last minute studying for--which method belonged to which interfaces and the deployment descriptor elements in my case.

Congratulations Madhuri for a great score.
I too am planning to give SCWCD 5.0 Have the mocks of SCWCD 1.4 been helpful or questions regarding that pattern came on the exam as the mocks of SCWCD 1.4 are not available easily on internet
