Dear Members,

I�m the silent member of this group. Yesterday I�ve cleared the exam. Thanks a lot to HFSJ team and ranch group.
I lost marks in Custom Tags, Design patterns and a little in EL!!!
Based on My experience:
1.Please read HFSJ for 3 times. First time, LEARN it. Second time memorize. And third time (after the final HFSJ mock exam), refer the concepts which you dint perform well in the mock. This it self is more than enough to gain concepts and of course to pass the exam!!!
2.Prepare some notes for every chapter.
3.Have a cursory look at specs. DON�T forget to refer Dynamic attributes topic.(I got 1 Q from that)
4.Fix one time frame, don�t postpone. (The biggest mistake I did!). Please refer Errata (Authors, why don�t you think of releasing new version of book, with out any printing errors?)
5.I did all free trail mock exams . And I got 65% in HFSJ final mock! (Took 3 days before main Exam).

Next, I�m planning to take SCBCD Beta Exam (Free.!!).

with Thanks and Regards,

Good job, Sudhir.

I really liked your "preparation" notes. I too find that if I create a simple outline (better yet a mind map) of each chapter, that I have a significantly greater retention of the content.
