I am very happy to inform you that today I have cleared the SCWCD with a preparation time of SIX weeks, 1-2 hours of reading each day and more hours in the weekends.
I mainly used HFSJ( read through 3 times ), used Mikalai Zaikin notes and did the mock exams found on the net. I especially found these two mock exams very useful http://www.examulator.com/moodle/course/view.php?id=5&topic=all
I didn't go through the spec's, thats why I couldn't score better I guess but anyway I am very happy with my score.
A huge thanks goes to Bryan Basham, Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates for writing such a wonderful book which is in my opinion a must for having a good grasp on the JSP and servlet technology.
And thanks to All RANCHERS, visiting this forum has really paid me off.
Next I will be preparing for SCDJWS sometime in January next year( its kind of hard to combine with work, family life so on ).
Thanks to everyone once again.
