Hi great Ranchers,

Actually I am a bit confused regarding the reference book for SCWCD 1.5. As I've Head First(SCWCD 1.4), I find myself unable to decide that whether I should purchase the newer version of that or not ? . That's why I need your help.

I wanna know what are the mistakes in 1.4 version and what are the topics added in the newer version.I read somewhere that newer version of exam is more elaborated !!! what does it mean ?

And is it enough to study the Head First 1.4 for newer version of exam .....

Please help me ....

Thanks in Advanse

Hi Ranchers,
A lot has already been said about the SCWCD 5 exam. I personally believe that every serious exam aspirant doesn't settle for just one book. I'm presently referring the following books:

HFSJSP by Bryan Basham
Good: simple to read and follow.
Bad: lacks in implementations and examples.

SCWCD 5 Exam Guide by Kunal Jaggi
Good: excellent subject knowledge, friendly language.
Bad: many examples to follow but they�re short.

Hope this will help in hitting the right books!

That's a very sensible statement! Trying to obtain as many different viewpoints on the same topic is always beneficial and (assuming all of them are consistent) should only act to clarify, never confuse.
