It really depends on what your focus is or where you feel new opportunities would lie. Technically, the two certifications do not depend on each other and can be taken in any order.

If you plan to work on Enterprise Java, then SCBCD is a logical progression from SCWCD. SCMAD does not depend on any knowledge gained from SCBCD. However, if you are interested in working with mobile applications, it is the right one to take.

My general understanding is that it is decent in Europe and Asia and not as much in USA. Compared to Enterprise Java, the J2ME opportunities would definitely be less, mainly because of the sheer size of enterprise deployments as well as due to the much longer history of J2EE compared to J2ME.

There have been a few posts in this forum earlier with others commenting on this. You can check them too.

Hi,

My Path in clearing the Exam was reading the books
1)Mastering the EJB,
2)EJB In Action,
3) EJB specs From Sun,
4)Working on Some of the sample Question.

And with this path you can score a good marks as well as you can gain good understadning about the EJB's and Persistence Api's
