This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
join an authorized institute if you are going to do something like that. I think the extra cost will be worth it and I think you are not allowed to sit for a certification exam if you do it from just anywhere. You will have to double check this however. About jobs, I also hope you are aware it might be just as hard to get into it the SAP field as the jobs are that much more scarcer and requirements much stringent. good luck.
I created the thread in high frustration and my real motive was to ask you guys is that wise idea to jump into SAP world.?
I am aware that all famous SAP modules are already implemented by MNCS and three hot modules(Net weaver,CRM,SCM) are adopted by many experienced professional and domain knowledge experts.In short market is saturated by SAP professional and it is very hard to break into SAP field.Those professional can blow me away like the way cat does with rat.
When I thought about leaving Java I almost cried ,even thought about suicide because I have spent lot of time in learning c++,Java and oracle(self-taught due to personal problems).
I need to expose my Java skills that's all,so I am wondering is there any place where I can get live projects' experience.
best regards, omi

The newspapers are awash with ads giving 'live project experience' or 'company work experience certificate'(interpret this as you may) Look in TOI Wednesday edition it as a career section.
CDAC & NSCT (now merge with CDAC) courses are again I found to be best for people like you. you do their 6month-1yr diploma & gain good exposure to software dev & GOOD campus placement. These diploma have very good recognition in industry. A score of people I seen with BCom/Bsc/BA/MBA/BTech (with no tech degree or background) did these courses & placed with good names in sw industry. I strongly recommend these courses. NCST (now CDAC) take people from such courses as TA (tech associate)/STA/Project Engineer/Staff Scientist & CDAC (MTS-member tech staff).
Start preparing for CST (Jan/Feb 2009)- competency in sw tech test
Even if you get TA with NCST (CDAC) you get exposure to sw which industry takes very favorably. Scores of people with jsut BA/Bcom I seen placed after this course/TA in good companies.
NCST (Juhu) & CDAC (Pune) are the BEST centers (campus placement & learning) but you need good rank in their entrance tests. You seems to already know a lot of things. I suggest you to learn grad level fundamentals in OS, Networking, Datastructures, Languages (C,C++, Java), DBMS which you might already studied during BSc/MAB(IT). Try to get as high rank as possible.
Esp Wipro recruits people with no tech degree BTech/MCA.
Invest you efforts in this direction instead of wasting time & money on fake institutes providing fake exp & false promises. I have seen you posting a lot of messages in this forum. Do this & you will be on you way to good career in SW industry.
Other Suggestion [explore yourself]: ------------------------------------ while I was at Delhi I heard about Appin (no personal exp though). you can try them for live project exp / placement. http://www.appinonline.com/index.php
First of all , I have to thank you for your generous reply.
Thanks for your time and suggestions.
I already know about javapassion and coreservlets and used them in my preparation for SCWCD.(totally fan of them)
As to CDAC courses,I thought about it but my heart and mind does not allow me to do such courses as I have no time and patience to spent 6th-1yr in their diplomas.
The courses they offer I already done in my degrees except computer organization,Mobile computing,network programming,information security. I will take care of them except Mobile computing in which I am not interested.
I think degree and diploma time is over and now is time to do some real work.But I will think about to give their CST exam for breaking into the Software trainee job.
Please accept my generous thanks again for informing me about Industrial and on-site training sites.Those site will be extremely helpful to me.You saved me the trouble
Try for a position in a small company..May be the pay wont be great but still you will get some good experience...
When I thought about leaving Java I almost cried ,even thought about suicide
Absolutely ridiculous...There are many people who have not even crossed high school,but are very successful compared to salaried IT professionals .Even a real estate broker in Bangalore earns more than a software guy..Even if you don't get any job don't think about suicide..There are so many other avenues to think about...
Helping hands are much better than the praying lips
