I don't have asked you very much, but I have learned a lot from your postings.

A tip for all ranchers to pass the SCJD: Search through this forum (from September 2003 till today), and whenever you see a posting from the persons above, read it and enjoy it. You will learn so much, that you cannot fail.

Regards,

Oliver

What's next? I'm not sure.

There are two alternatives for me:
a) I could learn the J2EE and continue with SCWCD and SCBCD.

b) I could study information technology to get a degree.
With distance learning (at the weekends and every evening) it would take over eight years.

Alternative a) makes more fun and is easier to pass, but in ten years, all my Sun-certificates are completeley out-dated and worthless.

Alternative b) is very difficult and hard to pass, but from a degree I would benefit my whole life!

What would you recommend me?

Congratulations on good score.

I would concentrate on getting a degree than certification.

Getting a degree is long term goal. Getting a certificate is short term goal. If you are in a job you can attend part time classes too.

Everything boils down to how much free time you have per day. If you have lot of free time then consider enrolling full time for IS.

If going for a degree do it full heartedly for a short time. Make it your prime objective. You cannot indulge full heartedly for the complete 8 years if you are going for distant learning.

Hi Oliver,

Congratulations on your score!!

I was hoping you could give me some pointers on your locking design (how complex/simple was did u do it) and any general comments about the assignment you would like to make that would help with my assignment...

Once again congratulations.

Thanx for your help.

James.

Very, Very good score. Congratulations. Could you please share some general information regarding your locking? I would also like to avoid the infamous 44/80.
