Moderators,
I am not sure whether I can discuss about other certification exams. But I have couple of questions.
1. How is the one offered by Brainbench, in terms of complexity and market value ?
[If dont want to say anything in a open forum, if you got time, please send me an email. I will appreciate it.]
2. Is there anyother Java 2 certifications like Brainbench.
I am just trying to get some experience before taking SCJP exam.
Thank you folks.

I cannot comment on the BrainBench exam since I don't have a clue what it is. However, I can say this - since SCJP exam is administered by Sun itself, it carries more value, perhaps than any other Java certification. This doesn't mean the other certifications( like BrainBench ) don't carry value. As of today, the SCJP certification is the most widely recognized credential in the industry among all (other?) Java certifications.
By the way, you should read this very interesting article on SCJP if you haven't done it already!
Good luck,
Ajith

Brainbench is a fun test to take. It is more comprehensive than the Sun one - Sun covers only the basics. Brainbench covers OOP concepts and practical Java concepts. I am certified in both SCJP and Brainbench and I must say that Brainbench was the harder of the two tests. A person could pass the Sun test only studying from a book and having no real Java experience, but I don't believe that you could pass Brainbench without some real experience.
And it is free! BUT, like Ajith said, the Sun certification has MUCH more name recognition and therefore value to an employer. But since it doesn't cost anything to try it, why not do it?

For Brainbench test, you take it using a browser from
anywhere. Thus, there is no proof that it was you who
took it or anybody else on your behalf. Also, as nobody
is watching, you could ask a group of friends to help
you. You could refer books and on-line help/docs.
You could also copy their questions and study them
when before you take the test again.
