This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
Hi, I have got the free vouchers for Test 483 and 486.Iam a SCJP1.4 and IBM xml certified.As per my understanding,the prerequisite for 483 or 486 is SCJP.Is it correct?.Iam planning to take the 483 first and then 486.Is this OK.Please let me know. TIA
I'm exactly on the same boat as Ravi. Can someone advise? BTW, what is the difference b/w test 483 and SCWCD exam. Is it as simple as IBM/SUN or each certification has a different value from the other in the job market, apart from their contents. Which one is tougher? Please bear with my ignorance as i'm not very much familiar with these J2EE related things. Thanks, Jayadev.
Thanks Hema. Could you give a pointer to the free resources available on the web to start preparing for this exam. Please consider the fact that i'm a total newbie to the J2EE area. I've done my SCJP2 in April 2001. I'm comfortable with OOPS, but very naive to the enterprise side of Java.

Can someone please give me a direction as to how the pursue this certification? My expertise in Java is mentioned in the above message of this thread
If you want to pursue 483 , you can directly go ahead. If you are experienced and comfortable with RMI,JDBC,servlet and JSP then directly go for J2EE. If you are new then it is better to first go for SWCD then 483. If you first take SWCD then you are only handling J2EE technologies and have some experience with admin of container like tomcat or other you are using. Divide and conquer policy is applicable every where.

I am looking around for some resources too. I guess some part of it will be covered by what we learn for SCWCD. For EJB, I was thinking of learning from Ed Roman's Mastering EJB, book available at www.theserverside.com The other O'Reilly book on EJB, I guess is also a good one. Will post other links as available. Hema
Humm guys good that you are going for EJB I would advice you to have some practical experience of EJB specially the trouble it creates in running and long deployment errors to be more specific following books should be used to Pass Exam 1) Mastering EJB Ed'Roman (free PDF from www.theserverside.com) 2) Enterprise Java Beans Richard Hafel Monson Orielly 3) EJB Book Wrox (optional) TheServerside.com is a great place for EJB resources.Also go through EJB Specification
