In the sun's web site I found the following which got me into thinking...
... a fast programmer might create a solution in about twenty hours. A more typical expectation of a time requirement might be in the order of a working week. If you spend a lot more than two weeks on the project, you might well be creating something that is more detailed than is really required ...
Does it mean I can assume I might be able to complete the assignment in approximately (less than) 2weeks if I work approx 8hours a day? ( and may be a week or two more for documentation...etc)
I am totally confused about which certification to go for now that I completed scwcd and scbcd. I wanted to do SCJWS, but I'm hesitating because those things are completely new to me. I do not have any working experience at all, so I need something to boost my confidence as well as gives weight to my resume.
If I have only 1month of time(let's say 4hours a day on the average) to alott for certification, then which one can I do in that time? As I told earlier, I do not have any experience(which can help for SCJD) or any idea about web services(which can help SCJWS)? I don't want any disappointments after the trial, as that might affect my confidence to attend interviews, so I want to know which one I can finish in the given time frame.
I would like to get some input about what are the average times taken by people who do not have any experience at all, so that I can decide whether I can try SCJD or if I should go for SCJWS ( I know the time taken by the programmer varies depending on several factors like how experienced he is, how smart he is ...etc, but I would like to get just some rough idea of times taken by programmers without working experience).
