Hi,

Planning to prepare for SCEA/OCMJEA part 1 certification and have around 6 years of Java/J2ee experience.

I am scjp1.4 certified. Is there any mandatory training/course for part1 exam?

I have bought Sun certified Enterprise Architect for Java EE study guide (2nd edition, Mark cade). Can you please suggest other must read books for the certification (preferably kindle edition)? Don't want to buy lots of them. Any relevant online material/tutorial/articles that would be helpful.

Thanks in advance!!

Prepare to pay quite a bit of money to go on a mandatory training course

The Master Developer exam requires a mandatory course as well.

Depends on what kind of work you want to get into;

Maybe:
- Web Component Developer
- Business component Developer
- Web Services Developer
- Persistence Developer
- Upgrade your Programmer certification to Java 7

Thanks for the replies!! As I understand now, training is not prerequisite but won't receive a certificate without it and am Ok with it. Back to my original query now ...

I have SCEA for Java EE study guide (Mark cade 2nd edition). Please suggest other must read books (preferably kindle edition)? Don't want to buy lots of them. Any relevant online material/tutorial/articles that would be helpful.

Thank you.

Kaur,

I'm not sure, if you would be let to sit for certification, without taking the mandatory class room training. But if you wish to read something on enterprise architecture, the book which you referred is good. But just to add, to become an architect, you do not need a certification (certifications do add value to resume, but not necessary). All you need is think like an architect. Long time ago, I read a post by one of the ranchers here, but unfortunately do not recollect it.

I disagree slightly on this... taking a certification is not just adding value to resume...
and preparing for certificate is a good step towards having confidence on that subject... one needs to spend time on those topics and take much more precaution & study, compare to otherwise.
Having said that I agree to be an acrh., certification is not required.... but with 6-7 yrs. experience as developer / TL - preparing for certification is way on desired path set by market & technology leaders.

For taking
Part I - one gets result after the test (even without training)
Part II - one can download (even without training)
Part II upload & Part III (easy) - One can do it (even without training)

But I am not sure if uploaded assignment is examined by Oracle without training ....
Case 1 - assignment examined - pass or fail grade
Case 2 - assignment not checked until training proof is sumitted

Can some share what's followed : Case 1 or Case 2 ???

Certification/badge (not at all without training)
