I am software engineer working in Java UI for set top boxes.I am SCJP and now want to get some other Java certifications. For which certification should i go which can help me in my career. As far as my work is concerned i am working on Core Java and not in Advanced Java like EJB etc.
So, should i go for SCJD , and how should i prepare for that.
SCJD seems to be the right thing for you. To prepare for it i recommend "Thinking in Java", "Effective Java" and "Design Patterns" (Gamma). Besides I recommend to finish a few other >90 kB source code projects (maybe you have done that already).
