Hello members,

I am planning to study for certification and i am wondering whether should i go for SCJA or SCJP as my first certification. Sun seems to have changed a lot of exam objectives and they have a new one called "Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition 5.0 (CX-310-055) ".

I have done a bit of Java during college projects, but i don't have any work experience in Java. Should i go for the SCJA or SCJP?

Thanks a lot
Best
Rama

Hi

SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 5 Study Guide (Exam 310-055) by Katherine Sierra, Bert Bates is excellent book and I guess that you could pass SCJP because you already have some experience with Java and when you read that book I am sure that you�ll be ready for exam...

You may find some relevant arguments in the following topics:

Which Certification?
Also have a look over the
