Hello friends,

this morning I passed the SCWCD 1.4 exam.

My weakest results (under the limit of 62%) I got in the sections

building a custom tag library: 40%
building JSP Pages using tag libraries: 50%
building JSP pages using the expression language (EL): 60%

This tells me, where I didn't learn enough.

For my preparation I used the great SCWCD Exam Study Kit (the old edition from 2003, covering Servlet 2.3 and JSP 1.2). It mainly lacks JSTL, EL, Simple Tags, and some J2EE-Patterns. I know, now there is a new edition, but I saved the money and tried the exam without buying a second book.

Beyond this book I used only free (zero-cost) material, the Servlet, JSP and JSTL specs, and the free mock exams at jdiscuss.com.

If I would have learned more precisely custom tags, JSTL and EL, my result would have been nicer.

Next I will prepare for the SCBCD.

Best regards

Werner

SCJP 1.2, SCJD, SCWCD 1.4

72% is very good, with keeping in mind that the exam covers topics like patterns which probably should be out of the scope of the exam.
