Hi,
I just passed SCJP 1.4 and i want to quickly get done with SCWCD. I want to know which site i should check for the latest exam or when it is going to be out. Beacuse i do not want to prepare for something and then i realise that i ahve to study for another version. Looks like that the new version is going to be difficult. I will rather do the easy one because still many companies will have the older version.
Also I want to know the order of SCWCD and SCBCD? Can i do SCBCD first?
Please advise.
Regards,
Raman

Padma,

The certification database has been updated with a record for the new SCWCD1.4 exam. And the results of the beta exam are expected anytime now. Putting the two together the new exam should be published by April first week. Keep checking the Sun Certification site.

Based on the beta experience and postings on this site, yes, the new exam is going to be a few notches tougher than the current one. As for the version of the exam to take, it is entirely your choice. Both would coexist for some time before the current exam is removed. My personal preference would be to prepare a month or two more and take up the new exam.

From an eligibility point of view, both these require only the SCJP as a pre-requisite. This means that you can take them in any order since you have completed the SCJP1.4. The two address different domains of J2EE, so the order in which to take them is again your prerogative.
Ciao,
GSS
