Since you ask: I think you should know that this is the forum for SCEA certification and the questions in your posting MAY not fit this category.

I am sorry if you are disturbed in any way by this post. But still my questions are "loosely" related to scea These questions may help to someone (like me), trying to make up my mind, to take SCEA just because it a costly exam, both to your mind and to your pocket ! :roll:

Maybe... maybe not.

You will be doing different work. Just because Architects traditionally don't write as much code as Developers, doesn't mean they do less work.

Depends on the environment.

I think this is good advice for anyone doing anything. However, knowing everything is usually reserved for Omnipotent Beings. This just all under the assumption that there is a pure "Architect" position. Many methodologies such as XP, dictate that the programmers wear many different hats including Architect, Developer, Mentor, and Tester. It is my experience that very few organizations have pure "Architect" positions. Creating the Architecture is a part of development and it is not beneficial to unnaturally separate the two.
