I recently took the 1.1 and 1.2 programmers certification tests, more as a way to test my ability than anything else. I am not a Java programmer (let me qualify that, I don't program as a career although I've been programming almost constantly in one language or another since 1979) and hadn't intended to be one, though I am slowly changing that opinion. My question is, I passed both tests (you can see the transcript at brainbench.com), but should I be happy with these scores or should I actually prepare and take them again? (I took both tests in one night after 12:00 am). With these scores, should I be actively pursuing a Java career? Thanks.
I've never taken the brainbench tests, can you tell us more about them? Most of us are focusing (or have focused) on the tests from Sun. Most people who take these tests fail. You need a score of 71% to pass. But when you do pass, employers are eager to hire you as a professional developer.
