This is my 4th Certification in Sun series. I have qualified with 84%.

About the Exam:-
I prepared for 15 days.As usual I used Head First Book. A very few mock! The book very well covers the topic which is needed for the exam. Carefully read the "Bang" portion of the book.

2 hr 15 min is good time -- so I didnt have any time problem(Which I had in my SCBCD exam).

I feel "Servlet Tech Model"-- request , response was really tough to me. May be this area we use day to day basic thats why Sun made it tricky.

One more topic is "JSP standard action"--here I got many many complicated question.
Session Management questions were very tricky-- unless I read the question very carefully , You may select wrong answer.

Many questions are there in DD portion -- but everything is covered in HFSJ.

Many people complaint about Design pattern --but I am fresh from SCEA, I didnot prepare for Design Pattern at all and I got full marks there.

Other topics are Okay.

All these feedback I giving as per my question paper! You may have totally different opinion when you will give your exam -- best of luck!

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

Thanks all!

For amar kasar :-

I managed to do it in 15 days because most of the thing I managed either from my previous reading Or from experiance(4.5 yrs). For example I did not read "Design Pattern" at all- Similarly no requirement for reading Filter chapter also. Most of the DD tags and Session were know to me from experiance . But I was not so familiar with custom tag. So, whereever gap was there , it was filled up by GREAT HFSJ book. I didnot expect I will struggle in "Servlet Tech Model" or "JSP standard action". Actually I should have read those area more carefully.

For the exam taker: -

Be sure you know the clear difference among 1) include file= .... 2) jsp:include and 3) c:import. I got around 4 questions in this area which requires clear understanding of these 3 elements. Try to write some code in this area.

For Design Pattern, you may read Core J2EE pattern if you want to get more than whatever is there in HFSJ last chapter .

Read each and every "BANG" and "Dumb question" of HFSJ-- these are really important for the exam. So, dont miss it!!

Next I will try to give SCDJWS. But alas! No Head First is there! So, let me see how it can be managed.

I agree. Here's the link:
