Good morning everyone. I just passed the programmers exam and want to know what path would be the best to take? i.e. to make me more marketable. Right now there seems to be many options: 1) the JCERT OOAD exam and maybe oracle or visual age 2) the SCJD 3) the SCWCD(?) web component developer 4) the SCEA Your advice would be greatly appreciated.
A few comments. I don't think highly of the certifications (see my other posts in this forum, search for "SCJP"). However, if you do go ahead and get them, understand the difference between SCJP, SCJD, and SCJA. They are for different levels. A kid two years out pof college won't get much benefit form a SCJA, sine he's not at that level. I'd also advise to stay away from any web certifications, as there's an excess of out of work web developers.

Thank you for your response. Ok. I will stay away from the web dev't type of path. Regarding myself: I have a four-year college degree under my belt.
