HI
Here is the thing, SCJD will teach you how to write some real good quality programs, good coding style , documenting style ...and designing to some extent. The bad part is that you will developing a software using Java Swing ( I dont know any live application developed in that , other than some IDE, and application servers).
As for SCWCD you will be learning something that is very new and in high demand, but since you do not have a programming assignemtn for that, this exam will only test you verbal knowledge in that field , It may not test the actual skill that u have when it comes down to programming.
anyways that is what I think

Actually, you are the only one who can answer this. What is your education level? What is your experience level? Where are you now, entry level, mid level etc? Where do you want to be in 5 years? Where do you see Java going in the next 5 years?
These you only need to answer for yourself.

"kevinyap",
The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp . We require names to have at least two words, separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. Please log in with a new name which meets the requirements.
Thanks.
