Yesterday I passed the OCEJWCD ( JEE6) with 84% and I would like to share my experience with everyone here.
1. Firstly I would like to thank all fellow ranchers and Marshal Bear for helping and clearing out a lot of things regarding servlets and JSP programming. The SCWCD links have been a great help.
2. I took about 1 months to prepare myself for the test, the reason for this little time is that I was already working on a web application project related to servlets and jsp and I thought to myself that it would be a good opportunity for me to put my knowledge about what I have learnt to the test.
3. Books and reading material :
(i) I read the Head First Servlet and JSP thoroughly once , and then the re-read the summaries of each of the chapters about twice.
(ii) Servelt3.0 specifications. This is very important ! Read it thoroughly ! Especially about servlet security and dynamic registration and section 18.104.22.168: Asynchronous Processing, chapter 8: Annotations and Pluggability, Section 13.4.1 @ServletSecurity annotation etc etc
4. Practice Exams :
(i) Enthuware mock exams are really very good. I would like to thank the people of Enthuware for putting together such an excellent set of mock exams and I advise everyone to do buy them , trust me , these will be the best 20 bucks you have ever spent !
(ii) Piotr's Mock exams are also very good.
5. The actual exam is not that much difficult , so if you are scoring about more than 80% in the mock exams , then you are good to go ! But still, don't under-estimate it. Register for the test when you are confident enough !
Once again thanks a lot and good luck for preparation everyone
