Hi to all !

I passed the ocp 1.6 with 73% and now i want to take the WCD exam. Please suggest books,notes, links etc to prepare for this exam. I am not from an IT/CS background and therefore i might need to study other concepts as well. It seems that HTML and networks are some of them. If there are any other subjects that i need to study before preparing for WCD, please let me know.


SCJP 6. Learning more now.

Hi Rahul,

I have a similar bacground with you. I suggest that apart from studying a text book such as HFSJ and making several practice projects, you might need to take a couple of commercial mock exams, because they can test your problem solving abilities that most free exams can't.

Recently I passed SCWCD 5 with a "cutting-edge" 71%, while my performance at free mocks is never lower than 80%.

I agree. Here's the link:
