Worth doing SCWCD/SCBCD/ICED before SCEA?

Hi folks

I've just finished with SCJD, and I'm looking towards SCEA. I've browsed through this forum, and there's some talk about a new release of the SCEA exam, so I was thinking about doing something else while I wait. Would SCWCD or SCBCD be any help with the SCEA exam? I'm keen to get going with something, but these aren't skills that i'll use right now so there's not much point in doing the exams unless they'll help with SCEA.

Alternatively, how about the IBM certified enterprise developer exams? Some of those (484, 486) sound like they might be useful for SCEA.

Thanks,

Ben.

Offhand, I'd say that 486 (OOAD with UML) would definitely be something that would help towards preparing for the SCEA exam. It'll give you practice with UML and probably start getting you thinking in the right mindset for the assignment. (I'm in much the same boat, more keeping myself in a holding pattern until September-or-so when they start announcing what they're going to do with SCEA. Not that I've not been driving my fiancee crazy with studying for the exam regardless...)

I think that the SCBCD and SCWCD exams probably would help towards studing basic J2EE information, but I don't know if that's really something that helps or hurts towards the SCEA test... since SCEA is more geared to architects, while the other two are geared towards developers. If I'm reading most of my study materials right (the Cade book among others), Part I seems to more concentrate on the 10,000 foot view of J2EE than the intricacies of the API. Though, on that, a veteran of the exam might be able to give a better view of such...

Hopes that helps, at least a bit.

That is the reason we say: the SCEA is too old (to take)!

Hi.
Now, i am preparing for the SCEA. Maybe i gonna take the test on Aust 1. At the end of the June, i passed the SCBCD. In the SCEA, it also requires more knowledge about the EJB than other technologies(ie, pattern, uml, security..etc). so as i think, you had better take SCBCD first than SCEA. and then if u take the SCEA, you can save more time to prepare for the SCEA.
