Hi all,
Please suggest me: Is the XML certification from w3schools is worth to do? Will it help in getting IBM-XML certification? There are so many in the market to do. How should I decide what certifications I need to complete.
I am SCJP 4 years ago. I am giving SCWCD this weekend. Planning to give couple more in next few months. I am in Java ocean since last 5 years.
Awaiting your inputs and references,
Thanks
Nagesh.

Its basically what technologies you want to learn.
Today's market is very dynamic and expects a lot
of stuff. Some of the technologies are considered
"basic skills" now. When you search for a job on
Monster or Dice, technologies like XML are implied
in the job requirements.
You can learn these in two ways - on the job when
you are on a project that requires this tech. or
be more pro-active and set your own goals. I prefer
the second. One way to set your goal is to take a
Certification Exam, in the process learn the subject.
While I have no negative opinions on the first choice,
I always wonder why will they pick you for the project
if you don't know the tech. that is required ?
Setting personal goals isn't very easy. Afterall, we are
all humans and so inherit the virtue of laziness
and resistance to change.
That's just me.............
