I want to make my career like great Authors. Currently i have cleared SCJP, SCBCD, SCWCD.
i think even many other authors have not cleared these exams. I mean to say they are so expert
they don't need such things.

So in short my question, what is the path track to become author ?

SCJP 1.4, SCWCD 5, SCBCD 5, OCPJWSD 5,SCEA-1, Started Assignment Part 2

Try to find a unique way to engage your readers. Kathy and Bert did this with their successful Head First series.

Also, having a love af Iclandic horses wouldn't hurt.

Hey Amandeep,

First, thanks for the kind words - I'll tell Kathy!

I have a very sincere question for you, I think this question is really key to being a good author:

Why do you want to be an author?
