Cleared SCWCD 5 with 92%

Hello Ranchers,

Elated that I've passed SCWCD 5 with 92% :-)

Well, i've been a silent member of this forum for quite some time now, but thought i should contribute by sharing my small experience on clearing this exam, so that it could be useful for new web programmers like me. [even though it may be redundant for others ]

Preparation: Total (74 days)

First 30 days completed HFSJ book and practiced all the new concepts. Next 34 days, prepared for the exam...

Books/References:
i. HFSJ (first edition) - 3 times
ii. David Waterbridge - Once [Amazing book that quotes tips and techniques that HFSJ missed - A must read book with negligible errata]
iii. Mikalai Zaikin notes - Twice [Covers necessary topics precisely -Useful cruncher on the last day!]
iv. Peabody notes on patterns

Mocks:
i. All the mocks that can be found in SCWCDLinks
ii. Enthuware jWebPlusv5 (Test 1 to 8 - Scored 81 to 93) - A useful lot
iii. HFSJ Coffee Cram - Scored 70
iv. David Waterbridge - All review Qs and mock exam (this was very very tough)
My advise is take lots of mocks and learn from your mistakes...
About the exam:
- About 60% of questions had EL in them... (Well, scripting days are dead i guess)
- Didn't expect - But got 2 questions from dynamic attributes
- Surprised to find the difficult level of web security was little high - thats were i scored less :-(
- 1 ambiguous question from web deployment
- 5 drag & drop Q's


Well, thats it... All the best for new SCWCD aspirants...

Congrats for your success


Most of the programming problems can't be solved because you don't know what the exact problem is.
Defining your problem correctly leads you to the right solution.
