I'm a student currently pursuing a Master's degree. I have successfully completed the SCJP2 certification exam last month.
I am now setting sights on what I would call the next "level" of certification. It'd be great to get some feedback regarding which of the 2 tracks I should pursue: SCJD or SCWCD. My primary intention is learning some more JAVA stuff to help me get an internship/job. Any feedback would be appreciated.

SCWCD is alot easier then SCJD. Beside, SCWCD might be more useful for your job.

if u don't have much java hands-on experience, scjd might be better. scwcd is more web related, but since it's only a multiple-choice based exam, you can't get much from it even you pass by memorizing facts.
