Hi Guys,

I have completed SCWCD recently, and I'm planning to write SCBCD. But I have 0 days experience in EJB and I have no idea on it.So far I have been working more on Servlets and JSP. Is it advisable to take on SCBCD with out any working experience ? and EJB in Action will cover from basics?

Is it advisable to take on SCBCD with out any working experience ?

Many ranchers get certified without experience.

EJB in Action will cover from basics?

Yes, it's very brain-friendly But don't expect it to cover 100% of the exam (there's no exam specific books yet).

And don't forget to check the SCBCD links.

I agree with you (Christophe Verre). More than people can take it without experience.
But my quistion it, that will effect the CV?? I mean when the person take the certified without experience and what your recommend take it if we don't have experience or wait to take experience at it then take it.

Really I'm hesitant I want anyone to advise me.

Been there, done that, I'll say that certification is part of the experience. And a good preparation for the exam includes practicing with examples.
I agree. Here's the link:
