This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Hi Thanks to you all those who help me directly or indirectly for achieving 88% (61/69).I have just come from Prometric centre.I am very happy now for getting more marks as compared to my previous one(SCJP)only 75% I took 3 months for preparing this exam. I read HFSJ multiple times ,also read Manning guide ,Enthuware ,some free mock exams and Specially Peabody's notes .I have also gone through specs when i feel some difficulty in methods of which class,their return types etc. I took HFSJ 1.4 mock exam 3 days before and got only 65% which make me tired .But i gone through mistakes which i made through during whole my preparation ,which i have noted in my register.
Please now guide me what should be next?Should i go for SCBCD EJB or to learn spring /hibernate because i think both have same work.Or should i go for web services certification.Please also tell me their study paths means best books ,best materials etc. [ June 19, 2008: Message edited by: pradeep singh ]
Most of the programming problems can't be solved because you don't know what the exact problem is.
Defining your problem correctly leads you to the right solution.

Hi omi sharma
I think you should go for web services cert.
best regards, omi
I dont know how to start and learn about web services.Please tell me how to learn it as i think no institute teach about this .I have asked to my nearest NIIT in Delhi and they told me that they dont teach this.Now if you can tell me how to proceed for it.I dont know anything about the web sercives at this time.Please guide me so that i can start learning.
I believe you should try to match your certification path so that it resembles your job requirements and/or career path. For SCJP and SCWCD, these are obvious needs for most because they encompass web development requirements. However, it would not make sense to take SCBCD if it is unlikely that you will be programming EJBs in the near future. However, getting SCBCD (or WS...) certified would make sense if you were using the certification to get better job or a promotion.
Well, it does really depends on what are you looking for by getting these certifications, telling you more clearly, if you want to pursue your career and being a sucessful j2ee candidate well, current market is mostly demanding for Spring/Hibernate so learning Spring will help you while they are less positions for WS developers cause they are mostly recruiting them as an integrator! I personaly got my SCDJWS and now preparing for SCWCD, and I have 4 years of experience! but I do suggest you to go through these certification because it will give a proper training that most of uncertified j2ee developers might have not have it. and secondly, for web services, one way of developing SEI(Service Endpoint Interface)is to use EJBs, by my experience if you don't have practical experience of working with EJBs, so you should go firstly go for SCBCD.
