I wrote SCWCD exams 3 times and failed in the year 2007 I believe. First time i got 55/100 second time i got 60/100 third time 66/100(which is pass mark until then but due to my bad luck that time only they increrase pass mark from 65 to 70).
I kind of got interest again to write and complete this exam in next 3 months. What are the best books, simulation softwares, exam prep kits i should read, work to pass the exam with high percentage of marks. Please advise
first of all don't be dejected. in my opinion you should scrutinize as to why you failed. where were the bottlenecks, gaps in your preparation. what you did wrong ? everybody and anybody can clear the certification with proper hard work and guidance. I have replied you on ejb forum also . here also you should go to scbcd links at http://faq.javaranch.com/java/ScwcdLinks. this is one stop place for all your needs, books, study kit, simulators. let me know if you face any problem.
