Passed the SCDJWS

71% - Not too proud of the score, but oh well, I passed. And the most important thing is that I learned a lot!

Test was quite difficult. Mostly theory-related questions like benefits vs. drawbacks, which technology would you use given a scenario, list the features of XXX, blah, blah. I would say about 70% of the test was theory, and 30% was code snippets. Some of the answers were SOOO closely related I had a lot of trouble deciding which answers to choose. There were some very detailed questions about WSDL 1.1, SOAP 1.2, and XML Schema. Make sure you know WSDL, SOAP 1.2, and XMLSchema like the back of your hand.

As far as the materials I used to study:
1. Ivan K's study notes- by far the best study notes for the SCDJWS, period.
2. Mikalai Zaikin's study guide and quiz -
3. Another Good Study Guide (somewhat outdated though, but still good)
4. WSIT Tutorial -
5. JAXP (DOM, SAX, StAX, XSLT) Tutorial -
6. General Web Service Architecture and Design -
