First, SCJP is a prerequisite for both the SCJD and the SCJWD. So, I guess your first step is to complete the programmer certification (SCJP).
After that I think it sort of depends upon what kind of apps you think you'll be creating (...not that gettting all of them is a bad idea). If, however, you are only thinking about doing the Java developer (SCJD) or the Java Web Developer (SCJWD), then you should perhaps consider whether most of your development will be for web clients and webtier components or if you envision yourself creating mostly desktop/AWT/Swing applications.
I haven't tested for any of those certifications, SCEA is my first one as well. I have, however, been professionally coding Java for over 5 years and been in the IT industry for almost 15 years. In that time, most of my projects have involved web based applications although I have written a few desktop apps.
