hi everyone,
Today I passed the SCJP with 91%
Screwed up in a few questions mainly on Threads and garbage collection.

I used:
Sierra and Bates book
Dan Chisholm's topic wise questions and compreshensive exam
Marcus Green exams
Javaranch forum

Thanks to this forum from where I got all the information I needed for the exam.

I work with J2EE technologies(JSP and Servlets) and am wondering which certification I should go for next..

I am aware of the SCWCD certification but I remember someone mentioned about IBM certifications which are more practical ..

What do you say?

Congratultions
I think the best choice next is the SCJD, (and eventually SCEA) in it you need to develop a small real application. Its a challenge even for experienced developers. You will certainly know threads when you're done.

The SCWCD should be easy if you use JSP and Servlets in your work. But your experience there may be as good as the cert.
