Wassup Javaranchers!
I'm considering on taking a Java certification, but I'm not sure which one to take? How many are there? Which is more useful? Which one is most prestigious? If anyone has info, please respond.

Hi to both of you, however-
The Java Ranch has thousands of visitors every week, many with surprisingly similar names. To avoid confusion we have a naming convention, described at "JavaRanch Naming Policy" . We require names to have at least two words (not just letters), separated by a space, and strongly recommend that you use your full real name. We want to get to know you as a Professional. Please choose a new name which meets the requirements and re-register.
