There have been a few of the ubiquitous "I passed" posts that mention several design patterns referenced on the exam other than the ones listed in the exam objectives. I assume these are used in examples and not necessarily required to answer the question, but I woudl be interested in hearing which of the other patterns have been mentioned....

The patterns that could be mentioned in the exam are all of the J2EE presentation tier patterns. This includes patterns such as Service-to-Worker, View Helper, and Dispatcher View amoungst others.
Professional SCWCD from Wrox press covers all of these patterns (in appropriate levels of detail) as well as all of theo ther objectives for the exam
Hope this helps

Hi -
I am following Sam and Dan's new book on SCWCD certification.
Though I haven't browsed the design patterns chapter yet, what I'm finding very interesting and useful is that in every chapter, wherever appropriate, the relevant design pattern is discussed to some extent, and sometimes with a practical example involving that pattern (for instance, it introduces the front-controller pattern alongwith the ServletRequest.setAttribute() and RequestDispatcher.forward() methods.). This is kind of making the subject complete.
At this point I feel this book is extremely exam-focussed and just to the point.
Thanks, Sudd

I agree. Here's the link:
