SCWCD passed

Hi All,
Thanks to the excellent HFSJ book and all your support, I cleared the exam scoring 94%.
I read the book once and revised it again.
I tried answering some mock SCWCD questions in the internet.
I browsed the specifications.
I experimented the concepts with examples.

As opposed to the SCJP 5 exam, we get plenty of time for this exam.
I managed to answer all the questions in 70 minutes.
But they crazily make ambiguous questions, trying to confuse between two equally probable answers. I filled in the exam comments fields asking them what they actually meant by the question?

Have a nice day
Best regards,

Hi Suba,
Congrats for the wonderful score. I also cleared the exam today.
You r right about one thing that the exam has confusing options to some of the questions, but I feel that one should read and understand the question properly before looking at the options.

I cannot exactly say, how long i actually required because i was waiting for the HF SCJP 5 book(prerequisite exam). I was generally reading for over a period of 3 months, as I got the HFSJ book long before in November last year.
But I certainly feel 3hours study for 4 continuous weeks is sufficient.
I had 1 year experience in servlet technology(although not jsp).

I used mostly mock questions from However i do not have a list. i did a general google search and used a few sites with questions.

I meant that some question were ambiguous themselves. If I give weightage to the first part of the question, one answer is right and if i give weightage to the second part of the question, another answer is correct.
We have to think the same way as the exam creator to settle on the deciding factor. Anyhow it is just my feeling.
But otherwise the exam is set with a very friendly attitude(mostly the time factor).

Thanks and regards,

Hi Bhavna,
I think the real exam questions are more straight forward. But topics that we think that are easier to answer(like DD and patterns), they twist the question making us think for a while.
In a 30 question bundle, I could certainly answer 25 of them correct.
Have a nice day!
