Hi, I'm new to this forum. but I've viewed your comments before and I got valuable info from it which helped me a lot when I was studying for SCJP exam. Got through SCJP this month! now I am thinking about taking either SCWCD or XML cert. My problem is I dont have any work experience or sufficient knowledge in either area, I only have a very basic idea of what these technologies do. Do you think it will be possible for me to take these exams just by studying the material?

Yes, in the past many ppl have passed these exams with great scores just by studying and with out prior working experience.
If you study hard, you might as well score close to 100%, and above all it is a great learning experience.
All the best for your exams

Thank you Dinesh for the reply. Glad to know that. I am leaning towards doing the SCWCD exam. I think it will be easier than XML for the moment. So I guess I'll have to start working hard for it!

Hi Nel,
It surely is possible, but it requires a lot more work than otehr certifications !!!
I am registered to take it in december !!! And there are no standard certification books available for the exam.
The participation in teh forum as someone mentioned earlier is also rather very dull . It is unlike the other forums !!
But teh materials quoted are very useful and I am starting to get a better grasp about XML right now :-) ..
I started 10 days back in the same state as you were ...Just an idea abt XML !!
Good luck for your scwcd !! Hope to see you soon preparing for XML :-)

Hi Nel,
I think SCWCD should come before XML cert too. Re; passing with no prior experince - sure, it's possible and happens often, but I think you have to make your own experince with a few dummy projects. XML technologies just don't sit right if you are not sure how and when you would use them -so write stacks of code and make sure you know why and where you would implement it all if it were for real.
Andles.

Thanks Andles. I appreciate your advise. You are right. I am thinking about taking the SCWCD exam first. Later on I may take the XML exam.
Regards,
Nel
