This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Today morning , finally I wrote the SCWCD exam and got 92% .
I am really lucky to be part of this live java forum and wanna thank you alll witty rancehrs, keep posting your doubts , It really helps to understand better .
I wanna offer Many thanks to Kathy Sierra, Bert Bates for their landmark book , Christophe Verré for their valuable time to be here and clearing all doubts , Charles Lyons for beautifully guiding through difficult topics .
I wanna thank Kalaivanan Durairaj , AshokKumarBabu , Mikalai Zaikin, Frederic Esnault and Marc Peabody for their great notes . Those really helped . I am debtful to you guys .
I also wanna thank Enthuware test engine team , I really appreciate the effort you guys have put in making such a nice test engine with huge question bank testing each single concept.
I got 75 --> 72 --> 77 --> 74 --> 84 --> 84 --> 78 --> 68 (last one , I failed ) .....
While doing these tests just keep writing in notepad the question numbers which are most doubtful (like where all options seems right , like where new concept encountered , like any concept which you wanna stress more as in my case Classic tags required attention ) , then understand their details in end of exam , then immediately refer to book after exam to refresh/clear those concepts [Due to sense of urgency , our grasping increases naturaly ] .
hi Vishal, you tried which version of Enthuware....please reply ...i am getting similar scores on version enthuware V_4.Should i go for the Exam or postpone it. I am appearing for the exam on 16th of this month.
I tried with version : enthuware V_5 , but i guess ,its okay if you have prepared with version V_4 as you have just 5 days to go.
To be honest , I won't be able to suggest that you should/should not write , because that you can only decide, how much confident and comfortable you are with concepts and practice now. Please forgive.
But if you really feel confident now , I would say , just go for it dude , dont wait for anything . All the best!!!
If you have gone through API , then its good , but if dont have time to go , Must go through Ashok Kumar Babu's API short notes , see all methods and understand their usage , specially return types of header and parameter methods . Also Dynamic attributes , SingleServletThread model are important (new topics to second edition book) . Understand EL very well .
You know Bert , I dont work with Java so I hadn't thought of writing exam ever but book was so interesting and catchy (I was reading it just for knowledge & to decorate my resume :P ) ,then I thought I can/should also write it and I did it.
Please dont mind , I am asking just out of curiousity : Why we dont have HF book for EJB 3.0? Should we expect it soon?
Now I am thinking of writing SCBCD 5.0 , but confused for which book I should begin with . Have asked SCBCD forum guys.
Thank you for conveying my regards to Keithy and Bryan , Thats nice of you...
