Dear Friends,

Yesterday I cleared SCWCD exam with 84%. I could have scored much better but since I had to appear for the exam with fever, I could not concentrate much. Anyway I am happy with whatever is the result. Now, I want sincere and helpful suggestion from all you nice folks out there. I have one more voucher with me which expires on Sept 24th,2007. Please let me know what I should do with this. I have the following options with me right now.

(i)Thinking of going for the SCBCD 5.0 Beta exam. I am not sure if I will be able to do that since I have less or almost no experience with EJB's. I think I dont need a voucher for this, though.

(ii)Go for SCJP upgradation, since I have SCJP for jdk 1.3. I think the exam cost for upgradation is less than the voucher cost(Rs7200) , am I right?

(iii)Go for Web services exam from Sun.

(iv)Go for SCBCD exam with the current available version. Dont know if the current version's exam will be helpful for me in the future.

So, Kindly give me your suggestions regarding this.

it is better to go for next certification then doing same certification again.
There are few addition and deletion of topics in new certification.You can learn these new topics yourself.
Go for SCBCD.

Is going for SCBCD2.0 really helpful in near future? Especially when the beta exam officially gets launched as the main exam?

I think you should go for either SBCD old version or the new version or the web services exam.

The thing to know about the 2 different SBCD exams:
the old one deals with the old way to write EJBs which is still the one used in most projects.
So if you learn EJB 3.0 it might not be as rewarding as learning EJB 2.0.
At least not at the moment.

I think I will go for the EJB 2.0 once I am done with SCWCD (hopefully soon).
Because I also want to learn the differences between EJB 2.0 and EJB 3.0

Hello,

Thanks for the reply. What good book do you suggest for SCBCD? Is HFEJB a good one to go for? Please reply
