Hi all,
I have completed my SCWCD with 92%.
Thanks for all your help and support.
I am happy that i have scored 100% in Design Patterns, security, and JSTL.

I read Head First JSP (Old ver) once and new version once.
Scored 68% in HFJSP mock and tried several mock exams given in SCWCD links here at Javaranch.

I am planning for my SCBCD now.
See you all in SCBCD forum.

Congrats and best of luck for your SCBCD exam.

Most of the programming problems can't be solved because you don't know what the exact problem is.
Defining your problem correctly leads you to the right solution.

Thanks all!

Shiaber and Sanchita,
Yes, going through new version is well and good. Especially SimpleTag is covered in new version and dont forget to attend the mock in new version. New version mock has some incorrect answers (4-5) and hence find its errata to verify your answers for those questions. If you start preparing using HFJSP better start with new version so that you can be sure you are in sync with new exam objectives.

For more details on differences between the old and new version, see this link.

To put it short, c : out and dynamic attributes are new. The spec and exam objectives have not changed much i suppose.

Reg. mock exams, the ones given in SCWCD links are really helpful.
