Hi all,
I am an undergraduate now in my final year. I've passed SCJP, and SCJD. I am doing computer engineering degree. In order to get a good job in IT, hopefully in Java area, should I continue with SCEA? Or should I stop here, and work harder on my course subject in order to publish a paper, or something like that?
Thanks.
cindy

If you just want to be a simple developer, I think that it is still a good idea to do the SCJEA. I think that an employer would appreciate a developer with a good knowledge of J2EE and UML. Many developers say that you should get some commercial experience before attempting this certificate, but having this certificate could make the difference between getting the first java developer job even (despite this certificate is more design oriented). I am also in a similar situation as you, and I see myself passing the SCJEA with flying colours.
