With the Weblogic 7.0 supposedly coming out soon, how rational is it to prepare for and spend 200 bugs on the Weblogic 6.0 certification exam?
I am afraid that by the time I come out with a Weblogic 6.0 certification, in a few months bea might come up with the new certification.
Anybody preparing for the certification exam having concerns similar to me?

i have already paid for the weblogic 6 exam, will it be possible to change to 7 if the new stuff comes out? Also how valid will the old one remain?

Just read the original info from BEA site:
How do I maintain my certification?
Your certification will last as long as you keep your certification current. Current means that you have passed the current or recent previous version of the test. For example,if the WebLogic 6.0 exam is the current exam, you would be current if you passed it or the 5.1 version. If you had passed the 4.51 version you would no longer be current.
If you are WLS6.x certified Developer you will no longer be current when version 8 will be issued.

That depends on your timetable for certification. There won't be a Certification for Version 7 until the final version is released (which will probably be in the next 3 to 6 months).
Version 7 will include the handy ejbgen and include web services.
For those that already have version 6 certification, there won't be that much more to study for the version 7 certification.

This is my experience with BCWD.
If you are comfortable with Whizlab questions, you have completed 40% of your preparation.
For rest of the 60%, you have to read all the related docs at and related specs from sun (ejb/servlet/jsp). Whizlab questions are helpful to understand style & depth of the real exam questions.
