Passed SCWCD

Hey All.

Passed the SCWCD last week. Got 94%... Test was easy. You know the way HFSJ and Enthuware try to catch you out by including obscure details and little traps... Well the real exam doesn't do that.

I read SCWCD twice... Once properly and second time just skimmed it making notes.

I then read through my notes once and took all Enthuware exams once. The exams are value for money, though I must say... The end of chapter exams in HFSJ are closer to what you'll see in the exam in terms of focus.

I got around 78% average on Enthuware and 71% in the final exam of HFSJ. DO TAKE the final exam in HFSJ, it really helps you when you read through the answers etc...

Recommendation for HFSJ readers, keep the errata close at hand... Other than that I reckon it's a really good book.

Now that I polished off SCJP, SCJD and SCWCD.... I wanna do SCBCD, but right now it is SOOOOO outdated... Question is, when will the exam be updated?... and when will HFEJB be updated??

GL everyone.

Congrats David!

94% is a great score on a tough exam, we're glad the book helped.

As far as an update to the EJB exam, I'd way that it's still quite a ways away... Even once the spec is finalized it will be a while before Sun will upgrade the exam. It takes the vendors a while to catch up, and it takes users a while to decide to jump to a new enterprise version. I'd be very surprised to see a new EJB exam before April... when it DOES get updated, we'll update the book

Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!

Thanks everyone.

I have decided to go for the current SCBCD... EJB 2.0/2.1 is what everyone uses nowadays and I can't be asked waiting till April to start with the next cert...

Hmmmmm.. I've come to realise that get certifications is addictive

Cheers /Dave
