Don't see too many people taking the SCJA. Didn't see that it wasn't required till after the passing score.

Passed SCJA with 94%

2 weeks to take the SCJP, wish me luck

do't get me wrong
but why did you do the JA exam???
by the way good luck for the SCJP exam becuase it's really tough
you need to prepare well, I found it most difficult than SCWCD by 10 times

I agree, I found SCWCD much more difficult that SCJP. There really aren't that many classes in the Servlet and JSP API. Get the major methods under your belt, and understand the web based architecture, and you're good. SCJP on the other hand covers so much material, and so many little nuances of the language, that you really need to be prepared.

Having said that, perhaps that provides some insight into the benefits of the SCJA exam. The Sun Certified Java Associate exam allows you to prove your proficiency with Java, without having to know every little peculiarity about the syntax.

Congratulations though! 94% is an awesome score.

Well part of it is that the cert chart that I saw showed the SCJA to be required so that is what I started with.

But I'm kinda glad I did cause it wets my whistle (so to speak) on how the test environment is and it kinda builds a bit of confidence getting a good score to start my Java cert career even though a child could probably get the score I got on the SCJA.

I'm in resume building mode right now and have a 3-4 years of Java Dev under my belt, it be nice to build up certs (no matter how mundane the test) behind it to show that I'm not full of it.
