Dear Friends,
I am in career transition.looking for IT work .
My priority is to obtain some certs quickly/easily which are going to help me in finding work.
I am looking for only the certs with multiple chice questions(not projects to finish like SCJD- Java Developer)
I am reading on this site about lot of numbers like 156, 483, 486 etc. I have no idea regarding their market value.
Please advice reagrding difficulty and market demand. Thanks in Advance for your Advice

IMHO just certificates for the sake of certificates will not help. You already have 2 Sun certificates, complete the developer exam. It will show the depth of your knowledge, which is more likely to land you a job. Don't avoid it because it does not have a multiple-choice format. It will give you a better chance to get a foot in the door.
The key is experience, unfortunately it�s not gained in a hurry. You have to pay your dues.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
