I have cleared SCJP today, now I'm wondering if I have to go ahead with the SCDJWS or the SCBCD. What should I start with ? I already have both preparation books.
Notice that I dont have any experience in J2EE

Personally, I'd go SCEA or SCWCD.

Congratulations on passing!

Yeah I was thinking about SCEA, but don't you think that it's too soon for me, because I don't have any idea of what is web services, EJB etc..., so I think it's better to start with thoses notions first before jumping on the SCEA.

I'm going to SCWCD after SCJP. :-)
But to you choose, depends of what you want.

By the way, congratulation for the SCJP.
