Hi everybody!
When is a good time to take the SCJA? I graduated from college a year ago and made a career change from an investment analyst to a Java developer recently. I have the scjp, scjd, and am working toward the web component developers. I had a job, but was laid off. So now I have time to take the SCJA. The impression i got from other people is that unless you are an experienced Java developer/project manager, don't even try getting the SCJA. Any thoughts? Also, how good does the SCJA look on a resume? Is it worth the effort?

The old saying
If you don't have experiece you won't get a job.
if you don't have a job you don't get experience.
applies here also.
So get going buddy, you will finally end up making the saying false.
all the best,
Ramdhan YK
