Hi, ranchers:

Just came from test centre. Passed SCWCD 1.4 exam.

First many thanks to HFSJ authors: Bryan, Kathy and Bert. You give us so great book. It is easy to understand, as well as giving us lots of fun. It seemed I went through some scene of a movie (Chinese one with Kungfu, right?). Also thanks to this site. I got new exam info and help from ranchers here. And thank Frederic Esnault for the notes.

Here's my preparation:
I spent 30 days read HFSJ twice. Most 8 hours per day. At the first round, Did coffee exams of every chapter and programmed in Servlet, Jsp, EL and Tag. I reviewed the book and exams at the second time. I made notes at the same time. Spent 1 week reviewing and doing mock exams, also made notes for DD, TLD, JSP stand action and cutomer tag, also made index for key points, api and inheritance.

I did mock exams in test104, Whizlabs, Javaranch, Jdiscuss(Enthuware). Two day before real exam, I finished HFSJ final mock exam, score 70%, not too bad. I felt confident, so I didn't do mock exam any more.

Before exam, I reviewed Frederic's notes, chapter coffee exams, all the notes and index. I felt well during the exam, finished with half an hour left, and left 16 marked questions in the end. But I am little disappointed to see the score, only 68%. Sections in Standard Actions and EL even worse.

Anyway, pass is a pass. Now move to SCBCD.
