Hi all,
I have passed the SCJP 1.4 with a score of 91%. Thx to all the ranchers who have helped me understand and clarified my doubts all the time.
Can anyone tell me what would be a better exam for me now???
Is that SCWCD or SCBCD or SCDJWS.
Which one of these is more looked after in the U.S. job market. I will be graduating soon and need to look for a job after that. Suggestions and Guidelines from the ranchers will be appreciated.
Thx,
bye

Congrats sai!!!
If yopu really want to be able to pmlement what you have really learned, go for Sun certified Java developer exam !!!
Or
Start with SCWCD, take the SCJWSD (the beta exam) and then SCBCD
good luck !!!

Thx Hari.
Is that required to be in that order, I mean are they related? Does SCJWSD need the prior knowledge of servelets and JSP. I believe that the beta exam should be taken prior to May 23rd, can I complete both these exam within this span of time.
Thx again.
bye

Hi sk,
That's only the recommended order. You can take any order you like. Since all those exams requrie SCJP as pre-requisite (except SCEA).
As for the SCDJWS, I think it would have little questions related to JSP/Servlet (or may be none), but knowledge on that area would definitely help.

Sure you can !!!
The SCWCD is the most easiest of all the exams. If u prepare continously, at the rate of 4-5 hrs/day, using the book
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/1930110596/qid=1081769457/sr=8-1/ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i1_xgl14/103-7564821-7259838?v=glance&s=books&n=507846
, you can complete the exam in 10 days !!!. Not much of experience in JSp and servlets is required.
BUT i would suo write teh examples given in teh book and take 15-20 days to really understand the concepts and then take the exam
Also , I agree with KEn . what he says is right !!
Good luck with scwcd

Thx Hari and Ken,
I would do as advised by you. Is the book ("SCWCD Exam Study Kit: Java Web Component Developer Certification by Hanumant Deshmukh") sufficient or do I need anyother book/specs.
What is the fee for SCWCD, is there a way i can get any discount on it??
Please give me some useful guidelines for this exam.
Thx,
bye.
