I have cleared Oracle Certified Professional Java Programmer exam (OCPJP). Oracle is giving me some offer for the higher level exam. Shall I take Oracle Certified Web Component Developer (OCEJWCD) or any higher version of Java like OCPJP8(JDK1.8).

Hi, Dipti,

I don't put much value in certifications, so I would say, only to give you the confidence that you have mastered the skills being tested. Rote memorization for the sake of rote memorization is not recommended.

It is useful sometimes when you have a chance to work on a technology and want to get up to speed quickly. But in general, the value of certifications is when they prove an existing skill (first and foremost for you yourself because confidence in yourself contributes pretty significantly to success as well as having a skill).

With best regards,

Anton.

I think what you should do is, you should try to build a project with what you know. Then think whether were you lacking some knowledge which was essential and you couldn't really understood. Then take a while to think whether you are going to take a certification or just Googled it and learn by applying those.
