Hello Saravanan....

Congrats on your acheivement.

Since being a novice, I would advice you to first learn the web-tier technologies like JSP,Servlets and then give a shot at the business-tier technologies(EJBs)...

Regarding the certifications you can take both SCWCD as well as SCBCD, since both has good market value and boost your career.

Regards

Hello Saravanan

I think the correct sequence would be to go for SCWCD first and then followed by SCBCD. I have cleared SCWCD recently and feel that this is tougher than SCBCD. If you are going for SCWCD then I would recommend you study Head First rather than Study kit for manning because the topics like EL,JSTL,Patterns and security are covered in much better way than the Study Kits second edition. Even for SCBCD I would recommend you go for Head First again rather then the Mannings SCBCD, I am not being biased here, but what all preparation I made so far I feel that Head First is far better in explaining things clearly and Stydy kit by manning seems to be like a trimmed down version of Head First.
