I'm taking my SCJD soon. I don't really think that even clearing it with full marks will make you become a good developer. You could do everything correctly in the assignments but if you don't do it in your daily work, it won't help any.

i would like to know what u learned in the process... like i learned basic concepts of java well in my SCJP preparation..
is it that u really become a good developer after this SCJD
Q1. how did i learn A1. i have been worked with Java for 4 years, first as a programmer, then as a team leader. i did nothing special to prepare for the assignment at all. in fact, if you just want to pass the SCJD, indeed their are several TRICKs (such as how to design your GUI to make the inspector feel good), but if you want to be a good developer, the SCJD itself can not satisfy you.
Q2. do i really become a good developer after SCJD A2. i don't think i am a good developer even now. i have worked with several fellows who passed SCJD but can not work well in project. and also, many excellent programmers do not have a certification.
