It's true. After SCJP you may have more knowledge than Programmers with some experience but that knowledge may not be useful

My guess: assuming you have some experience as a programmer, not necessarily in Java, SCJP will give you a head start through knowing the language semantics well. In real life job hunting the experience would matter more than certification alone - but (experience in another language + SCJP) is certainly a better set than (experience in another language alone). Pursue SCJP and have fun with Java!

I'm learning towards my SCJP without real job Java experience just like you.
