I have cleared SCWCD with 78% on 18th october. Thanks to javaranch and its members.
I have some experience in jsps and servlets but really never used EL tags and custom tags. As per real exam is considered i feel its really tough.
I followed two books 1)HFSJ 2)SCWCD study kit.
I didnt go through specs at all.
HFSJ alone is not enough particularly in EL tags and taglibs but for rest of the topics its quite good mainly for questions after every topic and the mock exam. i have studied scwcd study kit in last two days, but it was very useful.
my suggestion is that dont think that exam will be simple, i feel there is a lot of difference in taking SCJP and scwcd. SCJP was more simpler and predictable.
Hey Congrats..! Even m planing to take exam next week..! just brushing the concepts and will give 4 days for mock..! i gues its enough ? wat say..! Between pls do mail me some mock tests if you have..! firstname.lastname@example.org..!
Thanks and Regards,<br />Nilesh<br />SCJP 1.4, SCWCD 1.4
