I'm really really happy to announce that I got my SCWCD this afternoon with a score of 91%.

It was tough for me... Though I did prepare... dedicating at least an hour every day for the last 2 months... It was also very difficult to keep your concentration when you're doing .NET at work as always Maybe I should try a certification from the other side this time...

You should keep the concepts in your head permanently. I know it's difficult. The exam was not just about memorization, my set of questions were about solutions, analysis of problems, those types...

I read HFSJ three times.. First was the real serious reading, then re-read the chapters again in the order of difficulty (for me). Then lastly, read again for the review of the topics. I also did each chapter's mocks three times. Low scores on the first attempt are acceptable. By my third complete pass of all the chapter mocks, I should be perfecting them all but I didn't ... The final mock exam was too difficult. Of course I wouldn't pass in that particular mock exam.

You would find a lot of good good information from the links here.

Thank you to the following, particularly:

1) HFSJ and its fabulous authors!!
2) Mikalai Zaikin's Study Guide
3) Marcus Green's mock exams, and I did pretty well in there... It was helpful! Thank you Marcus Green for giving me confidence
4) Marc Peabody. I got a perfect score on the patterns ;)
5) Ashok Kumar Babu's complete web.xml guide. Bring this with you all the time!
6) Jothi Shankar Kumar. S SCWCD hints
7) It was fun answering Javaranch's mock exam. You should get perfect scores for these too to keep your confidence up.

Whew it's my best score so far. As always, I keep on checking out the Sun Certification Results forum for motivation and inspiration to pass

Thanks to all again, and I hope for everyone's success too!

I'm so happy!!
