Hi Friends,

Cleared the SCWCD exam today with 89%. I am quite happy with the score.
The exam had 80 questions, 10 for SUN survey purposes with 40 minutes extra.
About my preparation:
I had started my preparation quite a while back, but kept losing touch with the study. The past month and a half is when I got serious (and also joined the forum)
Here�s what I used:
1.Read HFSJ 2 times. Browsed through it a third time over a period of 1 week. The first read was quite a while back and familiarized me with the topics. It was only the second read which was exam oriented.
2.Mikalai Zaikin�s notes: Great stuff� covers quite a few points that are not mentioned in HFSJ.
3.Frederic Esnault�s notes.
4.Free Mock Tests available on the net.
5.Enthuware tests: Good learnings from those.
6.Went through the JSTL specs for core tags.
7.HFSJ Mock Exam: Gives a very good idea about the level of the actual test.
8.And last but not the least: This Forum. The links section is very comprehensive and helpful. The forum kept up my enthusiasm and helped clear many doubts.
9.I also maintained a notebook of my learnings from the practice tests.

One thing I�d like to say is actually implementing the concepts in a sample project went a long way in helping me get things right, especially in topics like EL and tags.

Would like to wish fellow ranchers all the best and thanks for all the help I�ve got on this forum.

Cheers,
Yoshita
