Hi all,

I'm very glad to say that I passed the exam with 94%.
To prepare for the exam I've read HFSJ, and I was always checking the spec and doing tests.

I did all three Marcus Green's mocks, scoring more than 90% in all of then. They are really helpful and are free, but I found some mistakes on the answers.
I also did the final mock in HFSJ scoring 75%.

The exam had some really complicated questions, and I have to say that I've answered around 50% of the questions without being absolutely sure if I was giving the write answer. I tried to use good sense and elimination most of the times. The other half of the questions was pretty easy.

So my advice is to read the book but not rely entirely on it to do your preparation, for the exam will have some concepts that are not there.

Well, that's it. Thanks everyone.

"renuka bk", welcome to the Ranch. We don't have many rules around here, but please see in the JavaRanch Naming Policy that initials are allowed for first name but not the last. "bk renuka", for instance, would be a valid display name. Please update it here. Thanks!

You can find all the resources mentioned through ScwcdLinks, which is in my signature below. Feel free to create a new thread if you have any questions and can't find the answer through searching our forum.

that's an amazing score, congratulations, just want to know your comments on book for HFJS for SCWCD, is that worth spending time on that or need some other stuff to get good score.
