Hi All,

I did SCJP 1.4 in June '06 and scored 95%.

After that i started preparing for SCWCD.

I have read Head First, 2 - 3 times.

But somehow i am not getting proper preparation and cant give the test.

Please advice.

I don't quite understand. Are you saying you have tried the exam several times already and failed? Or was it mock exams you failed? Or you don't feel confident enough?

If you think you don't understand the material well enough, the root cause I imagine, I would suggest getting another book to reinforce the topics. Much better to spend a small amount of money on another resource which will help your comprehension, than waste much more on an expensive exam voucher... Then write and deploy some code examples of your own and learn from your mistakes -- that's extremely valuable too.
