Had no plans for 287 now, my next target is SCBCD and SCEA.
Maybe SCJWSD beta.

Hi Marcelo,
If you are not rushing for ICED 5.0, why you need to rush for IBM 484 and 486??
Anyway, good luck for future exams.

Well Nicholas, I got the free vouchers for 484 and 486 from IBM.
I just don't know if is so valuable (for me of course ) to take 287.
I always planned to take 484 and 486, mainly because the areas of study for these two exams.
Well, who knows the future :roll:
Maybe after SCBCD , weel, that is another story.

Hi Marcelo,
In fact, before the promotion, for me, I will only plan for 484 and 486. However, in here, I noticed that there will be no certificates issue for these 2 exams.
Thus, the only choice for me is: all-or-nothing. Either pass all, or dont go for this exam. So, I feel happy that IBM gives out such promotion for me to get ICED, as I can use 90% off cost to get this certificate.
At first, I have planned SCBCD as well, however, there are 2 free exams come out. I need further defer my SCBCD plan to June.

Hi Yi,
The coming free exams are IBM 288 and SCJWSD.
The promotion for 288 is ended, I got the voucher before.
SCJWSD does not give out free voucher yet. However, as I have joined the survey, I can get the voucher automatically, without requesting.

I understand you, i thought to go for 287, but realized that it can't be done because i already earned vouchers for 141, 484 and 486.

Hi Vidya,
All the resources that i used are listed above, I prepared for 12 days, but i think that, 1 month is good enough if you want to score 80, 85%
I dream to have the same.Which you are targeting next?

Hi Shalbha,
I am sure you can , my next target is SCBCD and then SCEA
Regards,
