ICED Beginner Questions

Hi all,

Two questions regarding ICED.

1. It's been a while since I looked into studying for this cert - is this still a current (and useful) cert to go after? Or is there something else that would be recommended?

2. What's the recommended sequence for taking the 3 IMB exams for this cert?

thanks,
Janna
p.s. For reference, I've passed the SCJP, SCBCD, and SCWCD exams.

Companies will not upgrade too rapidly even new software is launched. Thus, I dont think ICED 5.0 will be out too soon even RAD 6.0 is released.


2. What's the recommended sequence for taking the 3 IMB exams for this cert?


IBM 486 -> IBM 484 -> IBM 287
OR
IBM 484 -> IBM 287 -> IBM 486

It depends on your knowledge in UML. If you know UML well, you can consider the 1st path because you had already passed SCWCD and SCBCD.

If you feel uncomfortable, you might take J2EE related cert. first.
