I finally got my score report for this test and found out I passed. Yay! I want to put it on my resume but not sure how to call the test. Something like
Passed JSE 7 SCJA/OCAJ.
would mean something to some people, but I think most people would not understand what that is, so need some kind of official name for the test that any normal person can read and realize that it's a programming exam for the Java computer language.

On my resume I have a seperate section "Additional certificates" and there I mention all certifications I have (and I always mention the complete -official- title at the moment I passed the certification): e.g. "Sun Certified Programmer for the Java Platform, Standard Edition 6", "Sun Certified Associate for the Java Platform, Standard Edition",...

Hope it helps!

I like to keep my resume to two pages, and about a third of the second page is a listing of my certifications. Here's a copy and paste from my current resume (warning: occurrence of me blowing my own horn ahead):


IBM Certified Associate Developer – Rational Application Developer for WebSphere 6
IBM Certified Application Developer – Rational Application Developer for WebSphere 6
IBM Certified Solution Developer – IBM WebSphere Portal
IBM Certified System Administrator – IBM WebSphere Portal
IBM Certified System Administrator – IBM WebSphere Application Server

Oracle Certified Associate - Java 7 (OCAJP)
Sun Certified Java Associate (SCJA)
Sun Certified Java Programmer (SCJP)
Sun Certified Web Component Developer (SCWCD)
Sun Certified Enterprise Architect, Java EE 5 (SCEA)

Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer - Windows NT (MCSE)
Microsoft Certified Professional + Internet - Windows NT (MCP+I)
Microsoft Certified Professional – Windows NT (MCP)




However, before the list became long, and I only had a couple, I would list the certification and then add a line or two about the cert. So here's how I would describe my Microsoft cert when it was the first one I got:

Microsoft Certified Professional – Windows NT (MCP)
-> achieved Microsoft’s premiere networking designation in late 1998
-> scored above 900 on all NT operating system exams, with a perfect 1000 on NT Server



I usually create a heading for "Professional Certifications"
