I already passed SCJP (both 1.2 and 1.4)

I just want to ask which exam is good to take first. SCBCD or SCWCD?
I am novice for both. But I am currently assigned to an EJB kind of
Project. Lot of my friends would say to take SCWCD first since it is easy than SCBCD according to them. And I already coded some Web Component. I already bought the 2 books Head First Servlet and JSP and also Head First EJB. But I am still confused on which one to study first.
I am thinking of SCBCD since I am using it in my current project.

I really need a good advice. Thanks.

Tina:
Theoretically speaking, it should not matter in which order you take SCWCD and SCBCD. Practically speaking, the following factors should be considered:
1) It depends upon which side of programming you are coming from? For example, if you are getting at J2EE from with end programming background, to do SCWCD first may be a better choice. While if you are coming from a backend programming, to do SCBCD first may be a good idea.
2) It also depends upon where you currently are in your career and where you are headed. In context of your job (or career), does it make more sense to do SCWCD or SCBCD today?

So, in your case it should be SCBCD first :-).

Cheers.

Hi Paul,

Thank you very much for the advice.

Now, I can start concentrating on SCBCD.
