hi all,

I passed the scwcd exam with 94% score today.

Thank you very much for this website and the people replied my questions.

Here is my experiences for this exam, hope it'll help those people who are preparing this exam (Spend less money but it will take longer time).

1. I read the Head First book 3 times. The first time took me nearly 3 months. After that i found out i almost forgot everything, then I start to read the book again. The second time took me 1 month. And then i tried to start doing the mock test, but i still not confident. So i decided to read the book the third time, but this time it only took me 1 week.

2. Mock tests: I finished the HF mock test (it is free with the HF book). I also finished the free of charge mock tests listed in javaranch.

Good luck for those still preparing this SCWCD and Merry Christmas

Could you post what were your scores on the mock tests? Just to have an example of corelation between mock tests difficulty level and real-one.

Sure. The mock tests i've done are:

1. The HF mock test: 65%. Before it is the first mock i've done and this mock test is harder than the real one. so i scored 60%.

2. Three free mock tests. I scored the first with 75%, the second with 82% and the third with 85%.

That is it. Hope it will help
