I have read that it is better to give Web conponent exam before the ejb exam. I have skimmed the HF EJB book in the last 2 days and I find the material to memorize for the ejb exam seems to be much less than the web component exam. What do you think. The ejb topics seems to be easier.
My motivation to ask this question is I cleared the web component exam 2 months ago with a mere 73% , and I found the custum tags, and dd stuff quite time consuming to memorize.
so I don't want to have an inaccurate assumption which might cause me a failure. Want to know am I missing something.

Thanks for your input

I agree. I would recommend SCBCD before SCWCD. I would also consider taking a look at the SCBCD Study Kit from Manning:
The HF and Manning together will be enough to pass the exam easily.
Good Luck.

I have given SCWCD and now preparing for scbcd. I think I did a correct thing. SCWCD is vast and time consuming than SCBCD.
Giving scwcd first and then scbcd is good because ......if u give scbcd first then start for the scwcd, u could get frustrated with the vast syllabus in scwcd compared to bcd.

Yes, its true scwcd has got more topics to cover then the scbcd...and from my personal opinion i find scwcd is more intersting then scbcd....
I personaly gained a lot in taking the scwcd exam...which i apply in my projects....

To cover the J2EE i think it would be better to go in steps...SCJP--->SCWCD-->

And also depends on what area your currently working...its better to be master in wat your doing then looking at other things(nothing wrong)...

SCJP,SCWCD, SCBCD (preparation )
