The highlight of my certifications was the SCJD, 89%, this one i got 75% after working with servlets for more than 1 year, about 3 years ago.
I read Head First Servlets & JSP and took topic exams from Enthuware simulator until i was over 70% on most topics. I would say about 30 total hours of preparation over a couple of weeks. [ November 19, 2008: Message edited by: Anton Golovin ]

Passed - what a relief!!!....I first picked up the Head First study guide about 2 years ago, when the version was still 1.4. Put it down, picked it up several times. Finally got round to sitting it on Friday, and scored 78%.
As well as the updated Head First study guide (v5) and its mock exam, I purchased a couple of exams from Sun, and supplemented it by skimming through the Servlet & JSTL specs.
That beer afterwards tasted damn good!
