Hi All, I passed the test today with 91%(2% less than the programmer exam) I read the Java Server Programming 1.3 edition and practiced the examples on WebLogic. Besides reading the specs, reading the Javadoc is important in getting a good score. In design patterns, understanding the pattern is not enough...recognizing the keywords for the pattern is important...i missed one for this. Thanks to everyone in helping me do it.
Congrats Sita, nice score.... What are you thinking to do next?

Thanks Ashik and Hema. Chinni Maj, thank you very much. I really appreciate it. I will reply to your message. Ashik, I am not really sure what to do next. There are Architect and XML certs that I could go for, but from different views in these forums, I have to come to the feeling that the certifications may not help in finding a job, and are also taking up lot of time. Any suggestions?
Sita, my observation is something similar to you. But certifications may improve the chance to get a job or to improve your position in the current job. Yet 1 or 2 certifications may be enough to get those advantages....
Sita, Congrats for clearing the exam with such a good score. reg. certifications helping in securing a job, only certification may not help,but if you have to compete with another person of same qual. certification will come to the rescue. it will also help in picking up your resume from the pile,if you have those logos on it. And it will give some confidence to your manager to give u a job. these are my views.. i'm eager to hear wht others r gonna say.. vamsi
