Hi guys,

I am considering taking the SCEA as I wish to eventually move into an Architect role. But I am not sure if I am experienced enough. In short my experience

- MSc in Software Engineering (Hons)
- 1.5 Years working on Java/J2EE projectswith Oracle SQL
- 1 year working on .NET Web Apps (mostly back-end and middle tier) with MS SQl
- 6 months working in a Business Analyst role
- Sun Certified Java Programmer (98%)
- Sun Certified Java Developer (95%)
- Sun Certified Business Components Developer (96%)

I know my experience may not be sufficient, but I am passionate about software and have a good head for studying.

Any thoughts would be appreciated,
Alan

I think you are being really modest.

In my opinion you have all credentails to think about this exam. The learning from studying for this exam will help you in a long way.
 
Of course, I found a very beautiful couch. Definitely. And this tiny ad:
