Firstly thanks Bryan, Kathy and Bert for the wonderful HFSJ book. Had it not been for this i guess i would not have been able to clear the certification in 9 days preparation. I really feel it is the book and the authors who owe the credit.

I gave the mock of HFSJ yesterday and i failed scoring 40/69. I tried to give the Marcus Green mock but could complete only 40 questions of that and i could not see the result. I did the javaranch scwcd mock before starting preparation and was scoring 90% on that(I guess that is way simple). Plus i also gave one chawla's mock. I did not give any other mock.
I just read HFSJ twice in the last 9 days. I have worked on jsp and servlets so it made life easier for me to grasp the concepts explained so dirt simply and beautifully in the HFSJ book.
I did not have time to read the API and the specs as i am working.

Anybody who is preparing SCWCD1.5 from HFSJ 2nd Edition,
Don't miss the *bangs* and the *bullets* in each chapter.
Solve the questions religiously.
And if you have prior jsp/servlets experience like me you won't need to look else where, that i can assure you.

But all in all, the exam was much simpler than the final mock in HFSJ 2nd edition book and the book is sufficient to score 90+.

Cheers to the Head First way of learning.

P.S. How can i forget to thank my fellow ranchers who posted their high scores on this forum and shared their valuable experience with others. Those high scores were a real source of motivation for me too.
