Hello Ranchers,

I cleared SCWCD 5.0 today with 88%

Moderators and fellow ranchers, thanks a lot for all your help.

1. Most of the questions were Problem-Solving type
2. Got only 2 drag and drop questions
3. Got around 8-9 design pattern questions
4. Design Patterns, Custom tags questions were a bit tough
5. Many questions didn't require lengthy problem reading. As only one of the options was syntactically correct

Study material
1. HFSJ: Thanks authors, for such a easy-read book
2. Frederic Esnault's study notes: Great notes Frederic
3. Marc Peabody's Design Pattern notes: Sorry Marc, i got 50% in Design Patterns section, i am very angry at myself for missing out on it
4. JWebPlus v4 mock exams (got marks from 74% to 83%, i recommend JWebPlus v5)

Thanks again everyone. Cheers !!!

Hi Hussain,

I have been working on Servlets and JSP from past one year,
So understanding concepts was not too difficult.

I would recommend, don't set any particular timeframe, rather read for knowledge, practice as much as possible creating small web applications.

After a while you will yourself know when you are ready.

Still, if you are not convinced, i think around 2 months of preparations is enough

Best of luck !!!
