I'm currently learning to take OCPJWCD6 exam and I have quite a few doubts. Can You please enlighten me a little?
1) When answering a multi choice question, is one given the expected number of valid choices?
2) Are answers like "Does not compile" and "Exception is thrown at runtime" present in most of the questions?
3) OCPJP6 focused on knowledge (syntax, API, tricks, etc...) however OCPJWCD6 seems to be more focused around usage. I've seen a lot of mock questions like "how would you implement XYZ with J2EE" or "you are given ABC and you should achieve 123". Is it the same in the real exam?
4) Are Enthuware OCPJWCD6 mock tests as hard as the real thing? I remember getting 60-70% on OCPJP6 mocks and I easily scored over 90% in the real exam. Shall I expect the same now?
5) How hard is the final Mock exam from "Head first Servlet and JSP" for SCWCD5 comparing to real exam?
I just passed the OCPJWCD6. I prepared myself by reading HFSJ, the servlet 3.0 spec, the jsp2.2 spec and took the Enthuware OCPJWCD6 mock tests.
First of all, HFSJ is not enough. It covers the main issues and gives you a good sense of servlets and jsp. You need the specs for new things like annotations, async and some minor changes in the JSP. The Enthuware mock tests covers it all and reflects very well the real exam. I scored an average of 72% on the mock tests and 68% on the real exam.
A few answers:
1) the expected number of answers is given, like "choose two answers".
2) answers like "does not compile"etc are not in the most answers but a few.
3) there are a few questions where you have to think like a translator or compiler but not as much as in SCJP6.
4) the mock test is a pretty good representation of the real exam.
