Hello Friends,
I have passed SCBCD with 85% marks. I am already SCJP certified. I am now thinking of doing SCWCD. Being a consultant I have to sometimes give very tough interviews and I am wondering what I should study next to improve my chances in tough job interviews. I am thinking of two options:
1. Doing SCWCD and strengthening my web component fundamentals.
2. Going deep into JAVA like how threading, gc etc. are done at VM level. Maybe try the SCJD exam.

What do you think will pay off better in terms of success rate in interviews?

Doing SCWCD is good.However preparing for Web services certification is a better alternative.All the best.

Congratulations

I am already SCJP certified


That makes sense, considering that this is a prerequisite for SCBCD

However preparing for Web services certification is a better alternative


A matter of taste. I think that SCWCD is a good choice instead.

I prepared using HeadFirst EJB and ejbcertificate.com. The exam went as expected. The mock exam on ejbcertificate.com gave me 84%. However, the HeadFirst EJB mock exam on the book gave me only 54% marks. I knew the real exam would be much easier since it specifies exactly how many correct answers are to be selected unlike the HeadFirst EJB one.
I would suggest trying out practically what is given in the book in one of your own in-house projects. This makes studying interesting and the concept becomes stronger in your mind. Most importantly, you realize if there are certain areas that you are not clear about which isn't very evident when you give mock exams or read the book.

Thanks for sharing the experience with us.
Will the HF Mock +20% will work out in SCBCD too?
Because this was true in SCWCD.Can anyone clear this.

The important difference between HeadFirst and the real exam is that in HF they don't mention the correct no. of choices. This is why I believed I could score more in the real exam
