hi friends,
i have completed my scjp 1.4 with 93%.
I am wondering what to do next.
I m having exp of 1 year 3 months in core java programming and web applications.
dont know about struts or jsp/servlets much and want to go towards learning EJB.
I dont have experience on EJB. so should i drop consideration for scbcd..???
Please guide me what to do next...scbcd or scwcd.
preparing for scbcd will let me know about ejb .while scwcd is not goign to help me much in my professional career.
So please tell me which one has more professional importance and which one to choose out of two.
Thanks and regards
Biren Shah

hi Biren,

First of all congratz for your great score in SCJP. It depends on your requirements to choose between SCBCD and SCWCD. There is no dependency between these two exams and you can take anything after SCJP. Infact, before starting SCWCD I knew only the basics of servlets and JSP and now I am pretty confident. The case with EJB is even better. I started preparing for the exam without knowing what is EJB and now I have completed with a good score and handful knowledge. So you can start anything. Keep in your mind that you are doing certification to get the knowledge. Not every one is doing certification to test the knowledge that they already have. So go for SCBCD and you can really rock it.

Hi Biren,

That is really true.. Being a SCBCD would help you much in your carreer. You already know a lot of WCD so why should you go for SCWCD, just have a brave heart and rock on SCBCD. I personally am doing the same thing.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
