Cleared SCWCD with 90%. Experience

I cleared SCWCD yesterday with 90% (20 days of preparation 3 hours a day) Was little disappointed after seeing score report as I thought I made only 3 mistakes

Here is what my score sheet looks like. You answered 62 out of 69 which gives you a score of 90%

I scored 100% in all but three sections mentioned below. I had very few questions in below sections but tooooooooo many on questions Expression Language (EL)and deployment descriptors.

Building a Custom Tag Library 80%
Building JSP Pages Using Tag Library 75%
Session Management 71%

Rest all sections 100%. Here is my take on REAL exam

1) Very easy if you have studied religiously from HFSJ and have identified your weak areas after giving final mock exam (I scored 71% in final mock).

2) Practice enough mock exams (all free mock test available, plus I took enthuware JWebPlus which I found real value for money)

3) Fredric notes and Manning SCWCD (some sections) are really good and will definitely help.

4) Session Management questions are the trickiest of all.
