This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide 1Z0-808 and have Jeanne Boyarsky & Scott Selikoff on-line! See this thread for details.
I cleared SCWCD5 with 79% last week. I know the mark is not so good. But couldn't give much time for the preperation. Btw I would like to share some points to the aspirants.
I spent 3 months, 80 days for preperation, 10 days for mock exams. But hardly 2 hours a days and some times never touched the book for 2 3 days(Not suggesting to anyone). Have read Head First 1st and 2nd edition. I would say 2nd edition of Head First is a must for any one taking the exam here after, for the reason that most of the questions in mock exam resembled in the real exam.
In mock exam of 1st edition, I got 55%. In 2nd edition only 30%. But I was swear I can get through the exam successfully and did it. Reason is most of the questions were partially correct.
Even though Head Fisrt mock exam is good enough, you have to take as much as possible mock exams like enthuware. This is were I failed to do that, and couldn't score a good mark. So the thumb rule I believe is Head First + Enthuware = SCWCD5 with 95%.
Thanks to other ranchers who gave enough information about the exams and for sharing their experience.
will meet you all in SCBCD forum then.
One thing I forget, now I have to execute point 4 give in Head First mock exam. Yeah to consume large quantity of mind altering substances. Thanks Bert, for remembering that. That was a good motivation to get through the exam.
