I was a java developer 10 years ago and I want to get back into the field. In order to put some current stuff on my resume, I want to take some certification tests. The ones that Sun offers are expensive, and there aren't very many of them. So I'm wondering if I used Brainbench instead whether that would be just as good? Their tests are only $50 a pop, and they are much more granular, covering many very specific topics not only in java development but also in other stuff like database design. Any advice or opinions would be greatly appreciated! Also, is there a service that is better than Brainbench? Thanks!
If you are taking the effort to prepare for the certification in order to get a job, a Sun (now Oracle) brand will be more useful and easily recognized by HR departments. On the other hand, if you are short on cash and only want to brush up on the fundamental concepts, Brainbench is fine too.
And will you succeed? Yes you will indeed! (98 and 3/4 % guaranteed) - Seuss. tiny ad:
