I cleared my SCWCD with 71%. I got 80 questions on the exam. The exam was not that difficult. I lost score on custom tags and JSTL. I never worked on those areas. Actually I did not have time to brush up any of my topics and I had a day off to my office for some other reason and in the later half of the day just went to the exam center and gave my exam.
I prepared for it some time in March/April this year but unfortunately, I was not able to give my exam at that time. I wrote this exam all with my experience along with the HFSJ book.
My advice to the experienced would be to brush up the exam topics throughly where you get to know the intricate details. To a fresher, HFSJ should be the bible.
Good luck to all who aspire to get SCWCD certified.
I'm planning for SCDJWS. But before I would like to take some time to research on the new version of the SCDJWS exam. I guess you are also preparing for the same but is it for the new version? Can you give me any insight on that?
The total score gets calculated based on 69 questions. But in your score sheet that you get at the prometric center tells that you have answered 66 questions out of 80 correct. Just don't worry about that.

I was very much worried about that. Thanks for your clarification.
If you see the developers track for Java, it is better you have all the 4 certifications SCJP, SCWCD, SCBCD, SCDJWS. I mean it is better to have knowledge on all the 4 areas as a J2EE developer. We are working on an app that uses Hibernate/Spring which together forms a good/better alternative to EJB. We use web services in that which is one main reason I want to gain much knowledge on that. I'm also at the same time preparing for SCBCD (though I have not started throughly), because we never know how the EJB 3.0 is welcomed by the community. It might take some more time to tell if EJB 3.0 is a hit and if it is a hit, then better off....I'm already SCBCD at that time, if not, then I'm happy that I know EJB 3.0 and be prepared for the next version of EJB.
