hi friends,
I have enrolled for core java and advance java from NIIT, from which i have completed core java and am going for advance java.
As i have completed core java, should i first give SCJP and then go for advance java and then give SCWCD or should i first complete advance java also and then give both the exams.
I will take 1 month and 15 days or the preparation for SCJP.
The problem is my college is starting from last week of june and I want to give both the exams before that.
Advance Java from NIIT will take 2 months.
Please reply I am confused.

Since you know Core Java, so you can go ahead with SCJP and let your advance java course run in parallel with your SCJP preparation. Do not wait for first doing SCJP and then going for advance java. Both can be manage easily side by side.

I do not know what NIIT covers in advance java but I do not think there are many topics common to both advance java and SCWCD.

Anyways, If SCJP and advance java, you are doing in parallel then once you clear SCJP, you may have covered advance java as well and then you can go for SCWCD.

Thanks Brij for your reply. But the problem is that I don't have time during the day so if I want to prepare for SCJP then I won't be able to concentrate on advance java at all.

Then you have to decide what you want to do first.

You can start praparation for SCJP without doing any course for advance java.

And I think same is true for SCWCD.

According to me I think Don't make a rush. First go for SCJP and then go ahead with advanced java. Dont do everything parallely. Because for a student cracking SCJP requires lots of hard work. Make your plan one by one.
