hy ranchers at last finished.. First of all i would like to thank my brother for introducing me to this certification as well as infoming me about the wonderful(excellent however u can say)head first s j book. Then not to forget about the superb forum where theres no need for anyone to ask doubts.all the questions and doubts are already answered and just searching is enough!!!(javaranch).thnk you ranchers(everyone)
about my scwcd it took me abt 4 months(unorganized) and full 1 month (organized)preparation. My sources: Head first( as i told before a superb one), Manning (where kathy left some deshmukh covered it) 3 Bibles(specs)and Core j2ee design pattern. Charles 18 th chapter (wonderful EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE A LOOK AT IT) Mocks: enthuware superb (much closer to real exam BUT DIFFICULT THAN REAL)(got around 80s in that first time) www.podar.net,anand chawlas, carls scwcd mock, javaranch's, jpilottest(rahmans),jirisonline,j2eecertificate's and javaranch's.
and about scwcd..also some items off objectives are visible in the exam. its better to know all the DD elements it will help the exam takers. I WOULD RATE SCWCD BELOW SCJP AS ITS EASIER THAN THAT EXCEPT OBJECTIVE ARE VAST.
doNext() --> SCBCD 1.3 all the best to future takers.
