Hi , i am still a student in college , will complete my B.S in Information Technology with a minor in math.
i would like to know if i am in the right path, i took 2 semesters of java( with the second including : linkedlist,stack,hash etc) , and will take another java course that deals with jsps and servlets also ASP.NET
, that is my first concentration required for this degree , the second concentration field i picked Unix/system administration, i dont know if i did the right thing here
but some of the other course that i took and will take include : Database management systems, applied networking, web dev. with java, unix admistration(2 courses)
. ASP.NET, technical report writing, and other 2 courses that deal with hardware and software in windows and linux.
my math minor includes the following: calc 1, 2 ,3 , differential equations, discrete math, linear algebra, statistics 1 and 2.
i did not take a "data structures " or " theory of algorithms" which are required for Computer Science
i am not sure if i am in the right track for the SCJP , i hear most people saying that , a SCJP and SCWCD or SCJD looks better with a Computer Science degree.
i am interested in the SCJP because next i would like to get the SCWCD , the java cert that deals with jsp and servlets, i am very interested in web programming with java.
so my question is : is it ok to try to get these certifications with my major? or should i have majored in Computer Science ?
