Passed SCWCD today

Today, I took the SCWCD exam and passed with a 92% score (with deductions as I had expected in the security, tag libs and J2EE pattern areas).
That result is a lot better than I had expected after getting only 68% on the Mock exam in the HFSJ book, but what was really helpful in the "real" exam was
1. the additional amount of time and
2. the fact that the question always specified the exact number of answers to be checked.

I could perhaps have done yet a little bit better if I had realized earlier that the HFSJ book (as great as I think it is) is not sufficient for knowing all the answers to all possible questions in the exam, something that I had unfortunately noticed too late (after I had already scheduled the exam) for completely reading and unerstanding everything in the Servlet, JSP and JSTL specs.

I would like to thank the authors of the HFSJ book - I think they have done an excellent job at writing something that is both instructive and enjoyable from start to end! My only suggestion for improvement would be to maybe make it a little clearer in the beginning of the book that on the exam you may encounter numerous questions for which, in addition to the book, you should have read the above mentioned specifications.
Thanks also to the participants of this forum; your answers (as well as questions!) have been very helpful for me!

Cheers,
Jens
