Passed SCWCD exam with 86%

This is what I did to prepare:
1. Read the Headfirst Servlets & JSP book from front to back in detail over the course of 2 months, and did all the excercises and mock exams.
2. Did a quick review of every chapter in the same book during the two days leading up to the exam.
3. Glanced very briefly at parts of the servlet and jsp specs that need more explaination.

And thats it! I got a 78% on the final Mock exam in the HFSJ book the night before I took the exam and that gave me confidence that I could pass.

My Advice:
If all you want to do is pass the exam with a decent score, studing only the HFSJ book is more than enough. As long as you read every chapter and do all the exercises and mock exams, you will be fine. If you want an exceptional score in the 90-100% range you'll need to study other sources also.

I'm very exited that I passed the exam because I've had an unopend copy of Half-Life2 sitting on my desk for the past month that I promised myself that I wouldnt open or play until I passed the exam. And for anyone who was looking forward to that game as much as I have knows how hard that was.... I'm installing it as I type

Thanks to all you ranchers! And The Headfirst crew!
