I cleared SCWCD yesterday with 91%. Am sooooooo happy and relieved :-)) Well, these would be my inputs for someone studying for it....HSFJ is a great learning experience... it's a new technique and somehow it works with me.... it's easier to REMEMBER facts and associate with diagrams.... so I would recommend a good read of this book... I also went through SCWCD Exam Study Kit and I think it's a very good book too..... but apart from all this.... read the specs and api for major classes.... there's loads in these that just need plain reading.... I had read on an earlier post that the actual exam has questions from mock exams , unfortunately I cannot agrre with that.. none of the questions that I saw in the mocks were on the exam, not even a likeliness of any sort...mocks stay good only for revision... I did buy Whizlabs too and I've used it to the core.. so that's my advice.... rest assured, the exam will be tougher than the mocks you give....but still not as difficult as SCJP 5.0
Hey Marc, do I get to go into the Hall of Fame?
