Both won't prepare you much for a job. I suggest that you -

1 - Study for the SCJP. Take the exam if you wish.
2 - After studying for the exam or in parallel, make your own project, contribute to an open source project or get an internship.

I give more importance to 2.

Welcome to the Ranch.

To get job in java in India at least, you don't need to give any exam (except for rare occasions).
Core Java- study OCJP (SCJP previosly) syllabus.
Advanced Java- learn JSP and Servlets

Thats all for beginners. And if possible, you should also have knowledge on C and data structures.
Note: Limited to only programming. Interviewers might ask you questions from other subjects like operation system, computer networks, etc. also.


The biggest gamble will be to ask a question whose answer you know in that it will challenge your theory | www.TechAspire.blogspot.in
