Hi All,
Yesterday only, I cleared my SCJP with 86%.
As currently I am not into any assignment at my office, I am thinking to take even SCWCD as soon as possible.
Someone please give me a rough idea about the time frame it requires to prepare for SCWCD.
To give you some data..I can devote upto 10-12 hours a day. And I have worked on Servlets/JSP for around 10 months. ( More exactly, i have worked more on Struts framework and i am aware about Servlets/JSP fundamentals)
I took around 2 weeks of preparations to complete SCJP ( around 7-8 hours daily).So, i am bit optimistic that SCWCD should not take more than a week. I am saying this based on the assumptions that -- 1) SCWCD is relatively easy and 2) Questions asked in WCD would be straight forward.. not very tricky. So, if i have worked on Servlets/JSP, it should not be that difficult. (I am not very much aware of the type of questions.. So, i may be wrong..) and 3)I am aiming for not a very big score.. around 80% would be ok for me :-)
Some one please advice me.

Greeting Naveen,
I would say you are ready for it .
If you are confident in your theoretical knowledge, my advice is just to prepare for the exam itself.
Knowing the subject is not the same as knowing how to pass the exam.
- Get yourself the objectives for the exam and see if you feel secure in the topics desrcibed there
- To summarize the theory, you can use SCWCD Study Guide by Mikalai Zaikin (Member # 30858).
- Do visit contains links to some of the good Mock Exams on the NET.
Good luck and let us know your score
Best regards,
