Hey, I Cleared SCWCD with 86%.
Not a very good score to boast of, but considering the time constraints I had this is quite a bit.
I Got 60 out of 69 so that makes it 86.96% and they round it (or rather floor() it) it to 86 instead of 87
Certain questions (specifically pertaining to Design Patterns) were poorly worded contrary to the claims made by SUN that all the questions are reviewed by a panel of English Language experts. In those questions it was very difficult to get the exact meaning.

And by the way even I had 70 (not 69) questions although my score report says 69 question.

Mock scores
JavaRanch 84% (avg)
JDiscuss 76% (avg)

My score for the HFSJ mock was mere 59% which was a sort of confidence breaker despite knowing about the plus Twenty rule.

HFSJ Review
It�s too good a book to be called a technical book. Nothing less than a novel.
It always managed to grab interest and thereby attention even in times when the mind was not very fresh and the body demanding rest.
Was a tremendous experience going through the motions of the book.
Hats of to the authors for coming out with this gem.
And one side effect of the book is that once you are through, it you might be a better blogger (obviously only if you blog) because the presentation is so catchy that you might start imitating it.

If anyone of you is looking forward to appearing for SCWCD, I would simply say HFSJ is the way to go.

Wishing the SCWCD aspirants All THE VERY BEST.

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