clared SCWCD with 91%

Hi ranchers,

At Last I had finished my SCWCD certification with 91% after 3 months from taking SCJP in March . One thing that I learned from preparing for these certifications is that it helps you to maintain a balance between what you are doing and your learning which is very important.

I had actually set a goal of writing SCJP and SCWCD by June 8th(which is my birthday), so I had only 3 months remaining with me after I completed my SCJP.

Heres my preparation story:

As Soon I finished my SCJP , I bought the Head First Book and started on the very day, from there on I read it now and then , I completed reading it in 45 days. Then I started reading once again noting every important point I came across and started taking the Chapterwise Exams. Then I started out with the mocks in JavaDiscuss,J2EE Certificate and Whizlabs mocks whioch of these certainly helped me a lot in knowing miniscule details tat I had missed out.

The most toughest one for me while taking these mock Exams had been Custom Tags related Questions. So I read everything that I could find about them and practised a lot until I feel comfortable.

In all these mock Exams I was scoring in between 70 to 80 percent.

3 days before the exam I took the Exam in the Head Forst Book. I was only able to score 62%. I am very unsatisfied with my performance. I took two more mock exams available in javacertifications.net and my score was ok.

then 2 days befire the Exam I took the mock Exam by S A Rehman through JPilot Test software. First Time I had Failed in a mock Exam. I was very very depressed with the result and the day before the Exam I read the Whole of the HeadFirst Book again except Deployment Chapter which I felt that I was very strong at. It took 8 hours to read. Then I didnt took any more Exam on the last Day. That it ..... I appeared for The Exam and I cleared it with 91%.

My Advice to all the ones who are preparing...

1)Read the Head First Book thouroughly , read every corner of the book ,dont even leave the Dumb Questions Section and Iam sure that any one can get 80 % for Sure.

2)I am working in Struts Spring and Hibernate for last 20 months. I had very little knowledge on Servlets and Jsp before I started my preparation.

3)Whenever U get a doubt dont try to ask it immediately in the forums without trying out on your own. I mean trying it practically(Code it). Only after that still if you couldnt get a solution the U ask others. This is what I learned from my Experience.This helps U to learn more things.

4)Take as many mock Exams as possible before taking the Exam.. Dont be in a hurry to take the Exam. This helps you to identify your weakness and lets you focus on them.

5)Follow Javaranch daily, I had been reading it regularly since 1 month.

Finally I had taken the Exam within the time I had set for my self, and now I am very relieved .......

All the Best for all of those taking the Exam.

Last Note: This is the slight easier Exam than SCJP.
