Hello Rancher,
Yesterday I appeared for SCWCD and cleared it with 86%. Thnakx to authors of HFSJ for their book and all those Ranchers who diligently answered my queries.
The assumption of +20% of what one scores in HFSJ's mock exam was applicable in my case. i scored 67% in that mock exam.

Regards,<br />Akshay Singhvi<br />SCJP 1.4 (95%)<br />SCWCD 1.4 (86%)

I want to ask you somethings -

Was the real exam on lines with what has been said in head first ?
While giving the exam, did you feel that head first is lacks somewhere ?
Specs ?
All around, is head first enough ?

thanks !

Thank you all for the wishes.

Niranjan: The real exam was on the same tone as given by the Head First. But real exam asks you more on API's which is where i think Head first lags.But in all other cases it Rocks(also in J2EE patterns).I scored 100% in that section.Hope this suffice your curiosity.Please revert back if any thing to clarify regarding the exam.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
