Nice Website...
I was wondering approx. how many SCJP's there presently are. Does this certification carry more weight than say, VB Certification? Microsoft's MCSE did in the beginning but know everyone has one. A guy i know memorized transcender for the NT test and passed it WITHOUT EVER INSTALLING NT. I am currently a VB programmer with 3yrs exp. I'm going to skip the VB certification track and focus on Java. My work is currently implementing Java and is giving bonuses for people getting certified...they don't look at microsoft certification as a big plus... any comments would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

Is it worth the time and $$$. In my opinion yes .
Do your homework. Surf the web. Contact you local headhunter.
What is in demand in N.E. (a part of United States of America). May be different
in another part of the country and/or world for that matter.
Java is becomming the language of choice to develop back ends.
