Advice on best Oracle course to help prepare for SCEA

Hi,

I am planning to start preparing for the SCEA certification.
I believe I could get my company to send me to one of the required courses for this certification. I would like to choose the one that is likely to be most beneficial, but it is tricky to decide which one, as I feel that I would benefit from both. So out of those:

Object-Oriented Analysis and Design Using UML (OO-226)
Developing Architectures for Enterprise Java Applications (SL-425)

which would you recommend as the most useful with achieving the certification in mind?

Your input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your help.

Katrin

For the certification, I think Developing Architectures for Enterprise Java Applications is more useful. It covers the trickier parts that rely on experience. OO design is easier to learn from books.

Hi Katrin,

We were lucky enough to have the courses SL-425 (Designing Architectures for Enterprise Java Applications) and SL-500 (Java EE Patterns) as part of our education program at work.

They are both very good courses, although Jeanne is right in that SL-425 is the most relevant (the course books alone are very valuable preparing for the exam).

Good luck!

Hi Jon & Jeanne,

I am from singapore & I registered for the course SL-425 (Designing Architectures for Enterprise Java Applications) with oracle university about 4 months back. Next week is my course. I understand from oracle university I would be the only participant for the course and no one else has registered for the course over last 4-6 months.

Does it imply the unpopularity of the course and the SCEA / OCMJEA certification.

Regards,
Karthickraj

Thanks for all your inputs.

I don't believe that the course is unpopular, I think the market for such course is rather small.

Katrin
