hi guys

I have just passed scdjws and still thinking about my next target. I have a small question regarding SCEA. As we all know this certification has 3 parts. Now my question is can I just give first part(310-052).Do we get some certification or some document which will act as a proof that we are done with scea part1? Is there any time frame within which you have to complete all the 3 parts.Can I go for the 1st part right now and 2dn n 3rd part after some months or may be years.....

The only thing you get to show that you completed Part I is your score report. There is no credential for partial-completion of the requirements.

On the query about the time-span, I believe, that you have a year to finish Part II and III for submission.

thanks mate....I have 1 more query.....at sun's site they have recommended that you should be having a work experience(in IT industry) of atleast 5 years before taking up this exam....as I am having a work ex of only 1.5+ years, wouldnt it be reasonable for me to do other certifications like IBM UML 833,IBM SOA 664 etc before jumping to SCEA?......or can you recommend me some other exams apart from those I have already given....

I was about to say, "What's IBM-833"... didn't realize my 486 is obviously out of date. I think that taking 833 is definitely a good idea, at least in terms of preparing for Part II.

Do you need five years of experience before sitting for this exam? No, of course not. Do I think it's a good idea? Certainly.... and you're the only one who can really judge if you are prepared or not for this examination. SCEA is not just a test of how well you can design a system, but of your grasp on the Java EE technologies and how they are applied in the design of a software system, and how well you can explain why you applied what portion where.

Best of luck!
