I just passed it and I took 94%. The most important thing that I did was (after HFSJ) the tests from enthuware; they are realy realy good, and cover some topics that are not covered at all or not enough in the book: exported variables, getServletContext+getServletPath+getServletInfo methods and a lot of questions on Design Patterns (I got a lot of them on the real exam) I read the specs only while the HFSJ was not clear .
Thanks all of you for rising interesting questions on this site and thanks to HFSJ authors. And thanks to enthuware tests' authors.
Good luck for each of you Gabriela [ April 10, 2006: Message edited by: Gab Buda ]
Hi Felipe, no, I mean the full test not the free one... it worth to make the investment; I think it rised my score from 80-84 to 94
Hi Bhavna, the questions was only on the patters mentioned in the HFSJ, but in some questions you have a combination of them (2 patterns working together to accomplish a goal); I got at least 6-8 questions about design patterns But it was ok; you must really read the quastion, there is no redundant information in it; if it is, you have not the good answer!!! Hope it helps

Srinivas, I talked about the questions on design pattern in the post just above yours
Rajendra, I don't have the free mock links except the mock on javaranch and jdiscuss.
Singh, I read the HFSJ once 6 month ago then took a pause then I prepared it 4-5 weeks (2H/day + almost all the weekends) but I already have 4 years of experience on servlets/jsp (no custom tags, not much security, no filters...); In my opinion, the most important thing to do is to identify your weak points (and not to read all the book many times), and in order to do it you must do the tests.
