I can't see the relation with this topic's title : Remove confusion
Who knows which one will be better for you, other than yourself ? Check the objectives of each exam at Sun's homepage. If you want to learn about EJB, go for SCBCD. If you want to learn about Servlets/JSP, go for SCWCD.
i m 2005 passout. since you might be from the computer background, i think servlet/jsp (WCD) will be nice for you, so as per my opinion you may go for WCd.
once you get job, and mature after working in lots of projects, think of doing BCD. EJB's ar a much higher level of abstraction (all rancher's --> please correct if i m doing any WRONG/IMPROPER statement)
SCJP 1.4 - 95% [ My Story ] - SCWCD 1.4 - 91% [ My Story ] Performance is a compulsion, not a option, if my existence is to be justified.

Sorry for the slang. It basically means I'm not a huge fan of SCBCD since passing it last year.
Then again, I'm seeing that someone is saying the SCBCD pays more. That makes me sick to my stomach because I believe the value of certification is in the love for learning, not money. Anyway, in the US, a certification does not directly effect what kind of job or pay you will receive. If things are different in other countries and you only wish to achieve certifications to make more money then go ahead and do it for the money.
But for your career as a programmer, the value you will gain in SCWCD studies will far surpass SCBCD. The content for SCBCD is used for very little of a project since it mainly covers environment setup for EJBs. You do it in a few days and you're done. SCWCD on the other hand covers topics used throughout a project lifecycle. [ June 02, 2006: Message edited by: Marc Peabody ]

Well any views about Java Web Services ?
I took its beta test last year and failed it by a few questions. It was an ok test but was extremely boring to study for. Some of the topics get too detailed than what is practical (in my opinion), while some other topics may become outdated by the time you get to do much with web services professionally. Also, much of the detailed information most programmers would never have to worry about because of so many tools being built to automate WSDL-to-class and class-to-WSDL creation. The test simply reflects how much more difficult it previously was to implement web services in Java than in .Net... but I expect that gap to shrink more and more with time.
SCMAD is a similar story. I do not think it will be much longer before most handheld devices can handle J2SE, eliminating the need for J2ME altogether. Again, this is only my opinion. Just thought I'd preemptively cover SCMAD.
