Hi All
I have cleared the exam with 82 % yesterday. Below is my story

No experience with servlets or JSP or any of J2EE. Started preparing in Mid April. Read the book HFSJ, made notes all along to complete details so that I dont have to read the book again. Have been going through lot of life changing event in the past months like selling my condo, buying a new house, packing and the move and then trying to settle in the new house over the last few weeks. Also read SCWCD study kit (Manning Publications) half-way through, updated my notes. Then finally revised the notes, skimmed through the complete Manning book. I found the flow in manning book better than HFSJ.
Then I took mock exams and here are the numbers

1. J2EE certificate
a. Study topics exams Avg = 66%
b. practice exam(20) = 65%

2. mock exam = 88%

3. JDiscuss

a. Test1 (30) = 76%
b. Test2 (30) = 73%
c. Test3 (30) = 70%
d. Test4 (30) = 83%
e. Test5 (30) = 60%

4. HFSJ book exam = 62% (+20) rule worked for me too

5. = 76%

a. SCWCD-Free-2(10) = 90%
b. SCWCD-Free-1(50) = 88%

Pay attention to EL, there were lot of questions, do as many exercises on it.

good luck to you all.

will probably take some rest now...learn some new tech like struts, spring etc

Congrats ruppak...

sometimes we need to stop and refule ourself before going for next destination.....

Being defeated is often a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent.

Can anyone tell me what does page implicit variable of jsp do? I have never seen the use of this variable in action. Can someone throw some light on it....
