Hi, I cleared the SCWCD exam today with 86%. The break-up of the questions per objective is as follows. 1)The Servlet Technology Model - 6 2)The Web Container Model - 7 3)Session Management -7 4)Web Apllication Security - 6 5)Building JSP pages using EL - 5 6)Building JSP pages using Standard Actions - 4 7)Building JSP pages using Tag Libraries - 8 8)Building a Custom Tag Library - 5 9)J2EEpatterns - 6 10 and 11)The structure and deployment of web application and The JSP Technology Model - 15. I scored full marks in 10 and 11 and missed one question each in rest of the objectives.
I found a mistake in one of the questions. It said about including static content (a HTML page) from a JSP and it had given names of both the files but in all the choices the name of a third file name was there.
For my preparations I used the HFSJ book, read some parts of the specs, referred to Mikalai Zaikin notes (they are good as a lot of stuff is directly picked up from the specs), went through the notes of Frederic Esnault, read Mark Peabody's notes on design patterns(Mark I missed a question ). For mock exams I used JWeb Plus by Enthuware, I found the product very helpful (the pattern of the questions is quite similar to the real exam questions) but it has some typo errors.
I would like to thanks Bert Bates, Kathy Sierra and Bryan Basham for writing a great book, I would also like to thank Mikalai Zaikin Frederic Esnault and Mark Peabody for their wonderful notes, last but not the least I would like to thank all the Ranchers for their help and support.

Bummer!!! Congrats on passing the exam though.
Well, I'll add your name and beverage to the list of things I need to do before I die. Private Message some info about yourself (like where you are from) to me and I'll see if we can work something out.
