Can somebody tell me about the next level certifications with brief intro on them.
I know a few like SCBCD,SCJD,SCMAD.
But I am really confused on selecting any one of these. So guys please help me out here.

It really depends on what you want to specialize on ...

If you are into web development, the SCWCD is perfect to get a hand on the whole servlet API.

If you want to specialize more on plain Java, the SCJD is good because this tests your actual ability to design software as you are assigned a task which you have to complete.

The SCBCD is good if you want to jump into Enterprise Java Beans.

Well, as I said, it really depends on what you want to specialize on. But the SCWCD or SCJD are the most common tests chose after the SCJP I think.

And.... You can take both. That's also good, I'm sure about it. I want to take both of it after SCJP, SCJD and SCWCD, becaouse I want to be a really good programmer and I want to spend endless hours learning, and endless years. Look at SCJD, what is about, it's a basic knowledge of this, and SCWCD is a basic knowledge of that... and then the other things... and I see a SCEA like a beutifull princess on a top of the white cake.

Nehaa your question has got nothing to do with the original question, so start a new topic for your question (preferably in Other-Certifications forum)...
