Hi. I passed today SCWCD with 91% but I am a bit upset.

Not because of the score, but because there were 2 questions that had all the answers wrong and I had to choose one of them!!! No wonder I haven't heard on this forum about someone who made 100% in the exam! I am disappointed of Sun certification team.

As advice to those who study for the exam, I suggest focusing on custom tags and jstl (there were a lot of questions on these topics). I used HFSJ in preparation for the exam and took mock exams on the net. However, there was a question on the exam not covered by HFSJ or ant mock exam that i took.

That's about it. Good luck to those preparing for the exam.

Congratulations. Sometimes, it happens and hurts the way questions and answers are formed. But for me, you are like scored 100%.
Great achievment. You have done wonderful job.
Have a great party with friends and look forward for further certifications.

Hi Catalin,

First off... CONGRATS !

Second, if you could email me with whatever you can remember about the possible error in the exam, that would be great - we can talk to them and get to the bottom of it, and fix it!

Third - if you can remember an exam topic that you think we didn't cover, we'd really like to know!



Spot false dilemmas now, ask me how!

Well there was a question on the exam which mentioned a tag <resource-env-ref> in the DD web.xml.

And both the questions which I think had all the choices wrong, were about the use of standard actions (especially <jsp:useBean > . I can't remember exactly the questions.(of course I wouldn't say them on the forum )
