Do you need to take other exams before taking this:
"Developing J2EE Applications with WebSphere Studio: IBM Certified
Enterprise Developer" exam?

There are no prerequisites to the IBM 287 exam.

For all 4 required exams, 310-035 (or 310-025 or 212-035), 000-287, 000-484 and 000-486, there does not exist a special order for us to take the exam.
Once we passed all 4 exams, we are then be certified.
But of course, now we are taking Java-based IBM exam, it is better for us to first pass 310-035.

Howard,
In the preface of your book (xxiii) it states that:
In order to qualify for the role of IBM Certified Enterprise Developer, you must pass four tests:...
If I understand correctly this means that test 287 does not have any prerequisites, however the role of IBM CED requires all 4 tests.

Yes, the order of the exam sequence is not important, that's why there is no prerequisites, but having all 4 exams passed is a must for certified.

Hi Nick,
It's like "Buy 4, Get 1 Free"... So can I conclude that this kind of certification system is like JCert Certificate in the past... I guess JCert tried to do like this way, but JCert cannot stay long...
BTW, how do u think about JCert, Nick? And I also want to know Mr.Howard Kushner's opinion about JCert also... Thanks...

Hi Ko Ko,
Personally, I like JCert's approach, otherwise, the scenrio will very similar now. When I took Oracle exams, I realized that there was an exam: Oracle certified Java programmer, which was very very similar to 310-025.
And now, IBM introduced 000-484, which asks similar questions (or based on the same knowledge) as from SCWCD and SCBCD. In fact, the certs somehow overlapping each others!!!
Even, as Howard said, 287 asks similar questions as 484 too!!!
That's why JCert tries to do "Certified Once, Recognized Everywhere"! But finally, it fails.
Anyway, what we can do now is to study hard on both IBM 484, 287 and 486, as well as the SCMAD beta.
Best wishes to all people who are in the same way.
Nick.
