Hi all,
today I passed the OCPWCD exam with score 98%. I have prepared for about 5 months. I have used HFSJ (great book), specification+javadoc, my own little programs and Enthuware (great exam simulator). The exam was quite similar to Enthuware (regarding the difficulty and the form of asking the questions), so I would definitely recommend it and I'm looking forward to Enthuware for the new JEE6 JSP & Servlet Developer exam.
I wish you the best with your certifications! :-)

Thanks guys.
It is strange, that my status in CertManager is still "enrolled" and I have not received any confirmation mail from Oracle :-( Now when I click on this certificate in Certification progress, I see that I still have to complete some of the Sun Certified Java Programmer exam But I already have the OCP Java SE 6 certificate! I will write to Oracle what is happening. The OCPJP6 is identical to SCJP6, isn't it?

Thank you Abhay and Paul.

Now I finally received a mail from Oracle, that I'm certified - the problem with SCJP/OCPJP is resolved

Hi Rene,

Congratulations!!! Did You write a letter to Oracle about your problem? Unfortunately I have exactly the same problem with CertManager. I've passed WCD 29 April 2011 with the same result - 98%

Bahtiyar

Hi Bahtiyar,
yes, I wrote a letter to Oracle and after few days, they fixed it (they manually changed my status to 'certified' in CertManager). I suggest you to write them, that you already have OCPJP and they should fix it.

Congratulations !

Can you tell me how much time it took to prepare for the exam ? Did you use any other books to prepare for the exam ?

Thank you, Rahul. I think I already mentioned it - it took me about 5 months and I've been learning intensively. About books - I used only HFSJ + spec + javadoc. Before the exam, I think that I have memorized HFSJ completely + the Enthuware simulator also helped as the topics in the simulator were somewhat more broad that HFSJ.
