I'm no expert, but I suspect that taking the exam can only be a Good Thing. If the market is bad then the certification shows you've got a certain level of skill, and if the market is good then you've still got the certification.
Either way it shows what you know, and that you're motivated enough to go out and accomplish things.
Where I work, those are considered a plus and when we're looking for new people it ensures we'll at least give you a call and talk about your skill set.
I hope this helps,

Hello Butt:
I think when market is better, you do not need any thing. They ask you, can you code Java? you say yes; they hire you. This is my understanding that certification is necessary when market is bad. You need some thing prove them you know JAVA.
