I had one of the early assignments that required a conversion program. After three years and a number of life event changes, I'm very happy to have finally completed this certification. It has been a great learning experience and I would encourage anyone considering the SCJD to go for it. I feel it would be even more beneficial if Sun (or whoever the graders are), if they could provide additional written feedback to the scores on both successful and unsuccessful results. I feel it would be a valuable asset for the candidate. On a positive note, I would like to give compliments to Sun for their quick responses. I ended up emailing email@example.com on numerous occasions to determine the status of my exam. They responded in a friendly and timely manner. Sincerely, John Sinues
