This has been asked so much
What do you feel like learning ? Servlets, jsp ? Ejb ? Web services ?
There's no order, although many people (myself included) prefer SCWCD before SCBCD.

Although without order, some other people mentioned that BCD relies on some knowledge in WCD, and WSD relis on both. Is that true? If so, I should go for WCD first.

Hi Warren, If you are asking because of potential job prospects, I would say that you should be going for SCWCD. I am only taking SCBCD to practice for the SCEA. The SCWCD is also a good intro to the J2EE deployment descriptors and security which is a good precursor to both the SCBCD and the SCDJWS. However, this is only my opinion and others may live in areas where SCBCD is more marketable and disagree.
