No, the score is fine. Don't even think of re-taking. Focus on some other Java technologies such as the SCWCD exam. Congratulations on passing, many, many people do not pass at first attemp.

Congratulations!!!

The score looks good to me. And more importantly, it looks good to Sun!

Be proud of your accomplishment. You should be.

Thanks to all of you guys. Now, I will go for next level exam with happy mood... ... Before throwing main problem of mine, I would like to give some background about me. I have been working for a small company for almost 2 yrs. The project on which I am working for a company, is not based on java technology... This project is basically full of testing and preparing documents. ....... I have interest in JAVA [and obviously earning good amount of money also] that s why I went for SCJP 1.5 . Now, I want to go for next level. Here I am confused... Next level has got 5 kinda exams.: SCJP, SCWCD, SCBCD, SCDJWS, SCMAD... SCMAD is not of my interest. 4 is left... What to do..? Since, I dont have work experience in any JAVA related technology, I do not know what to do next. Please guide me... Which certification has got more opportunity in finding a good job with better package.

Depending upon your interest, you can go ahead with any certification.

Hello
I think you can go for SCWCD, but you need to have a good hands-on experience for that. That doesn't mean you have to work in some company to get that experience...you can practice well daily in your house or at your work place. You can also go for SCBCD, but that depends on your interest... hope this helps

Thanks & Regards

How long? Only you can answer that.

First .. get a good book ... I suggest the K & B book (Head First Servlets & JSP)
Second ... post questions and answer! questions from others here on Javaranch.
Lastly ... write lots of small sample apps and take several mock exams. How you do on the mocks will tell you how ready you are.
