SCWCD Exam and Book Queries

Hi all,

I'm planning to give SCWCD 1.5 and I had a couple queries..

I've already given SCJP 1.4 long time back (some 3-4 years ago may be). One friend had told that I'd need to give upgrade exam of SCJP first. I checked on the Sun Certification site and from what I understood, that's not really the case.. Any edition of SCJP is OK for giving SCWCD 1.5. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Also, I have Head First Servlets and JSP 1.4 book, I'd bought it long time back, but couldn't quite make time to prepare.. I've just started to prepare again and I wanted to know - is that book enough or should I trade that one for newer version? Are there a lot of differences?

Please advice. Thanks in advance!

Thanks and Regards, Souvik

Hi Roshni, As far as I know any version of SCJP is good enough for taking SCWCD. Please check here for differences between SCWCD 1.4 and SCWCD5 exam. The link answers whether you can use HFSJ 1.4 to appear for SCWCD5 exam (answer from Bryan Basham!) Good luck!!!

No. As Rajeev said, any version will do. You may have to know some basics about generics and enhanced for-loops though.

is that book enough or should I trade that one for newer version? Are there a lot of differences?

There are not many differences. You should be fine with that book. But you'll need to check this tutorial about dynamic attributes. There are also a lot of good links here that you should check.
