Hi all ranches,,
Well give SCJP with 91% thinking for same in The SCWCD but luck was not on my side this time Just got 83%.
i will give u the Formula of 83% .
I should tell u tht i have no knowledge of Servlets 60 days ago .I suggets before Starting Prepaing for WCD u have to know how to install tomcat wht is http Protocol.How do They WOrk .WHAT IS deployment Descriptor ?.Wht is meant FOR GET AND POST requests.(i want to say tht if u know the few Basics then U will do it on ur own AfterWords as i do)i studied for 20 days sometimes 3 hours sometimes 4 and few days i read nothing.
Firstly make ur mind of giving tht paper in 20 days .. then pick miftah notes start by reading API then slowly but surely go in to deep keep in mind the interface name the packeges name(javax.servlet) like tht..
I borrow three bocks from which i read only few paras of Books tell u one thing as some one of u have said tht WCD is easy i don't agree its a tough passing is not a issue but getting above 90% is still hard ther is a lot of Therotical Question in which u have given statements and u have to pick few correct ones.. hard...
the three things that i read from the books are listeners and security from Jason Hunter Custom taflibrary from
:JSP Duane K.Fields :
well tell u tht Miftah Notes R enugh if u go in depth and use the Books u will get above 85%...
Only Jwebplus is Usefull .i used Jwhiz Beta and i m sure i it will also Help u a lot..
mocks listed at javaranch links page is just Ok or should i say fair .
don't use Mika Hirvasoja's Mock Exam their r lots of Mistake in their....
Javaranch own exams is Helpfull..
I would say to put something extra in Jsp - MOdel and Design Patterns and Security and Servlet Container Model(its seems to be easy but the Question were hard u have to pick the best statements from the Given)
A horendus Question i got on the threading issue..
Taglibs quetion r very easy.. just have to Know the constants .
Keep in touch with the Scopes of Beans and Methods of pageContext ...
My last tip that have the Basics of ur Concepts Cleared Theroticaly Lets say
" i give u some statements on WEB-INF directory then u have to Pick the best one"
(those statement was quite tricky)
read Servlet mapping from Specification.....tht was the one tht was used in exams and try it out all examples .......
use design patterns from Miftah notes(Best) and Sun Blue Prints mentioned in Links page
the last but not the least
use :\scwcdlinks.jsp
read Javaranch topics who cleared WCD their taughts and Experiences

Thankx all for their very respective comments ...
Hey won't mind i just want to say tht the mock exams is of no use for SCWCD as well as i think tht the explanation of ur Questions is not very brief and confusing ..Which ultimetly make a people think tht they are wrong.and belive me some are Wrong.
Now u will ask which of them are wrong ...i do it two times about 70 quest and found something wrong on Beans like Stuufff
and the wording of ur question is not very understandable
