Passed SCWCD with 95%

To all, thanks for the website, the forums and all the help, this site is fanatastic!!! Thanks Fritz for your helpful comments and answers.

Thanks to the authors of HFSJ, it's very well done, and very, very helpful. There was very little on the actual exam that was not in the book. The book's contents led directly to setting up testing examples (which I'd highly recommend doing). I ended up with 1,300 flashcards (these included test code snippets with results), burning these in took a lot of time, but with total recall of the book's material, the exam was easy.

I read very little of the Java specs, I tend to try to memorize everything and didn't want to be pulled into memorizing all of this.

Thanks to the folks at Apache/Tomcat, the software was flawless and very easy to test with.

The FAQ's and Tips on Javaranch were very helpful.

I did buy the Enthuware mock exams for $29 dollars, I think it was worth the price. There is a lot of material covered in Enthuware that is not in HFSJ. There were only 2 questions of this nature that directly helped with the actual exam. This extra info did add to my general understanding of WC's and was helpful. There are lots of questions about material that is on the exam, all of the answers were accurate (as far as I could tell) this is a big plus! It gave me confidence that I knew the material thoroughly, and I discovered some areas I needed to revisit. To help you judge, I took mock exams 1-7 in the week before I got the 95% and my scores were, 83, 77, 88, 81, 86, 84, & 81.

Finally, thanks to the folks at Sun Microsystems for another product of very high quality. So much of what you did makes sense and I can see how it would fit in real-world situations; this makes it much easier to follow and learn. You should be proud of the work you did!!

Congratulations on your high score! I am glad I could help a bit here and there

Thanks both!

Frits, I'm starting SCBCD this morning. I'm giving myself 13 weeks instead of the 9 I took with SCWCD.

13 weeks! , I wish I could do that. For sure I will take more weeks of preparation, having a job, wife and children slows me down

I have bought Enterprise JavaBeans 3.0 by Bill Burke, and it looks like a good study book. Which one are you planning to use?

Regards,
Frits

Thanks all!!

Frits, I'm also using the Bill Burke EJB book. 'Mikalai's study guide' on Javaranch looks like it might be very helpful, it lists and answers every EJB objective. "See you" on the SCBCD forum.

I do have a day job, with COBOL/CICS mainframes, I'm madly trying to re-tool. Do a query on Monster usiing COBOL/CICS and your lucky to get one hit in any US city. I'm un-attached, my son is 18, and I'm moving to Seattle in August, so before I move, I'm using most of my time away from work (30 hours a week) on these certs. It's a little overwhelming at times (every other night I dream about method invocations, ahh!!!), but I started in November, passed SCJP in March and now SCWCD, it's very satisfying.

Respect

I have also downloaded Mikalai's study guide, I will use it next to the book.

See you on the SCBCD forum.
