There are plenty of people who have used this book and some practice/mock exams and done really well on the real exam.

hi there,

since you're currently studying for the exam , then why still want to use HFSJ in the same time? or after your current book, you wanna read HFSJ as well then ?

if you prepared enough, just go do some mock exams b4 you go for test. there is no need to buy HFSJ if you're not needing it.

but another book, is also a good choice if you're not a person who have no financial problem.

all the best.

BTW: Each chapter is followed by aboout 10-20 questions and the end of the book contains a 70 question mock exam.

I think HFSJ is a nice book. I learned and apply most of the recommendations in the book at work. I'm also preparing for scwcd and it is my only reviewer at this time.

This book prepares you for the latest SCWCD exam.
This book is excellent. You may want to supplement it
with Specs (spec. page numbers are mentioned in the book).
JWebplus's mock exams are good.

I bought them (6 months ago).
The tests can be downloaded.
You can find detailed information on JWebPlus site.
You can download trial version (it is advisable to do it) for free
even before you buy the tests.
I agree. Here's the link:
