Passed SCWCD with 94%

Hi,

Gotta tell you, this score really surprised me. I only got a 77% on the HFSJ final mock exam, and my jdiscuss scores ranged from 70% to 87%. Well, I'm not complaining

For my preparation I read the first half of HFSJ, took a couple months break for some reason, discovered that I'd forgotten almost everything, and read the whole thing through from the beginning. I also studied the API's for a lot of the classes and interfaces used in the book, and took a look at the TLD entries for JSTL tags not described in HFSJ (c ut, c:forTokens, c:redirect.) Then I skimmed every chapter, taking the coffee cram tests again and did a bunch of the SCWCD 1.4 jdiscuss tests (http://jdiscuss.com/Enthuse/jsp/ShowAvailableTests.jsp).

I took the HFSJ final mock exam two days before the test, and the final night I looked at Sun's blueprints for the patterns covered on the test (http://java.sun.com/blueprints/corej2eepatterns/Patterns/index.html.)

A word of advice for everyone who takes the test in the future - when (not if) you come across questions that have no valid answers, put yourself in the shoes of whoever wrote the question and try to figure out what thought process was followed. Make sure to ALWAYS have the required number of answers checked, even if you know that there are not enough valid responses. Of course that's just plain common sense

Thanks Karthik,

Like I said, I just used Head Fearst Servlets & JSP, jdiscuss.com sample tests, sun's core j2ee pattern blueprints for 5 of the required patterns (MVC is not in the blueprints), and the API specs (javadocs) for Servlet and JSP related classes. Also be sure to look up the <c ut>, <c:redirect>, and <c:forTokens> descriptions and more info on the "variable" attributes for Custom Tags and Tag Files since HFSJ doesn't adequately cover them.

I downloaded the full Servlet 2.4 and JSP 2.0 specs in PDF format, but after I saw how many hundreds of pages they were, I decided against reading them.

Good luck,
Yuriy
