Hello all,

I recently took the SCBCD test and passed.

Now I am left wondering if I should pursue the web service certification? I am not sure how useful that is going to be. Or, should I start working my way towards the SCEA?

I would greatly appreciate some insight.

Why not go for the SCEA examination. It would widen your knowledge on the Java Enterprise Development.

Congrats ...

If you need to use webservices I should go for that certification. Otherwise go for SCEA?

I had purchased ethuware's mock exam for SCBCD. It was the best investment ever. It was very very helpful. Make sure you take all the mock tests.

The exam was on the same level of difficulty as the mock exams.

I hope this helps.

Good Luck.
I agree. Here's the link:
