Hi All, I joined the group today itself. Cleared my SCJP exams recently with 80 %. Planning to go for the SCWCD exam. But I do not have any experience in JSP and Servlets. Had done some self study. I hope I will be able to cope up for the exam. Swati
Thanx! Dat was really inspiring. I have started with my preparation, beginning with the Head First book. I am simply going through the details of the chapters now. Presently am in the 5th Chapter, " Attributes and Listeners". I am finding it a bit difficult. Am stuck at the context, request and session scope thing.trying to understand.I hope I will find u guys help who have already cleared the exam.
Thanks once again.

Hey Vikram, congrats for ur score in SCJP. Wen I started off the preparation, I was like guided by the members to start with the Head First series. So I did the same. Jst go thru the previous mails of guys who have cleared the exam, if u havnt yet. They giv u an idea , regarding how to prepare for the exam. warm regards, Swati.
I've also found understanding the SCWCD material a bit challenging.
Things that have helped me understand the SCWCD material was my 4 years of Microsoft ASP web development experience, company training in XML, and personal self-training in design patterns (Gang of Four & Martin Fowler).
Without this background I probably would have found the material extremely frustrating to comprehend. I'm hoping to take this test by July.
