Passed SCWCD - 91%

I`ve passed SCWCD 1.4 yesterday with 91%. It took 10 days for me, but earlier (one year ago) I have read HFS&JSP. So now I`ve read it once again a little bit faster. I took final mock exam at the end of the book and 2 Enthuware (JWebPlus) tests, having 85% and 92% which gave me score very close to real exam score. These mock tests were very close in form and style of questions to the real exam, really.
What surprised me, exam has 80 questions, not 69 which I expected. These 11 questions are something like beta exam for SCWCD 1.5 and are not scored... but on my confirmation after exam i see: "You answered 63 questions correctly of total 80 questions, which gives you 91%", what sounds a little bit strange . But don`t worry, there is extra 45 minutes for these beta questions, so exam lasts 3 hours, not 2:15. Another think is, that beta questions weren`t marked in any way, so I didn`t know if I answer real qustion or only not scored question. Another surprise where errors in questions which were in some questions, for example about security-constraint. I don`t intend to disclose real question, but there was something similar to:


instead of


and there was no answer, that it will cause error or something like that.
There was also one question which had 3 correct answers and 2 answers could only be selected. There were also some minor errors in style of questions, which were not concrete enough and I had to guess which answer, as the autor of the question think, is correct.

And that`s it - just HF Servlets&JSP + Enthuware and exam becomes pure pleasure
