I have been working with Java for around three months, which is my first programming language. I am due to take the SCJP exam next week and am now looking for information on the developers exam. Would it be wise to go straight into the developers project or gain some work experience in the real world? Are there many additional Java skills to aqquire that differ from the programmers syllabus? I would any advice.

Andrew,
If I could recommend it would be "both". It might be a bit difficult to get a Java job with just a SCJP under your belt - do you have a degree, any experience in other languages? The SCJD project will prepare you for more real world programmming situations.
