Hello all,
I have just passed scjp yesterday. I would like to have a second java certificate as soon as I can. SCWCD and SCJD, which one of them would take me less time to prepare in order to pass ?
SCWCD is held exactly the same way as scjp, but
SCJD is held in a completely differently way. So I guess SCWCD takes less effort to pass. Am I
right ?

That depeneds on your skills and experience, but in general i think the SCWCD would take less time there are plenty of study notes out there, get the APIs, web.xml tld.xml, read the specs, and youre pretty much there

I'd go for the SCJD if i was you. It forces you to apply all the theoretical knowledge in your head (ie exceptions, interfaces, swing, MVC, RMI/Sockets). If you just want to get a certification in as quick a time as possible SCJWCD is for you.

Hi Jim,
Can you recommend me some study notes that you
think are good ?
Hi Jaspreet,
I would like to get certificates for both SCJD
and SCWCD. It might be better for me to start
with SCWCD first because SCJD require more effort
on it. When SCJD is the only exam left for me to target for I can spend more time doing the programming assignment and do it nicely.
Thanks for replies from both of you.
I agree. Here's the link:
