Passed OCPJWCD with 91%

I passed the OCPJWCD (1Z0-899 Java Platform, EE 6 Web Component Developer Certified Expert Exam) with 91%.

I'd like to share the exam preparation experience.
  • I spent two calendar months for exam preparation, or to be more accurate 50 days. I've spent from 25 minutes to 4 hours per day (3-4 hours -- it was on weekend)
  • I used HFSJ, 2ed book. I must admit that this book is well written and must be used for THIS exam preparation. Some mock exam questions were more tougher than on real exam.
  • I used enthuware mock exam. This simulator is amazing. I wouldn't pass exam without it
  • Nikos Free SCWCD Mock exams were very helpful during the reading the HFSJ book. It helped me to concentrate on my weak areas. I.e. re-read some chapters and create memory card for some tricky places
  • Piotr Nowicki's Java EE 6 SCWCD Mock Exam is must have. When I tried to pass the first time these mocks I had been failed. It was additional motivation to download and read twice Servlet 3.0 spec. And it worth it.

  • Here is the enthuware mock exam results:
    Test 1 - 67%
    Test 2 - 79%
    Test 3 - 86%
    Test 4 - 75%
    Test 5 - 86%
    Test 6 - 86%
    Test 7 - 74%
    Test 8 - 86%
    Test 9 - 84%
    Last Day Test - 84%
    Average = 80.7%

    You should pay attention on the next exam objectives (it's from servler 3.0 spec):
  • HTTM methods
  • web-fragments
  • Async
  • @ServletSecurity and declarative security
  • servlet, filter and listener annotations
  • multipart
  • I had several questions about @Resource, @PersistenceContext, etc

  • I haven't got any questions on real exam neither on enthuware mock exam about custom tag creation (Simple Tag or Classic Tag, see HFSJ, ch10)

    Congratulations, Orest !

    I had a bit different experience - only 1 question on Async, no listeners annotations, no @PersistenceContext questions.

    Apparently, Oracle uses several question banks for the test.

    I agree that Enthuware simulator is very very helpful.

    Did you use HFSJ (2ed) or OCEJWCD Study Companion: Certified Expert Java EE 6 Web Component Developer (3ed), when you prepared for the exam 899?
