    Default Anyone taken/taking up Sun Certifications here?

    Hey Guys,

    I just took up the Sun Certification for JAVA Version 5 (SCJP 5) and cleared it with a 82%. I am planning to take up the next level and need some guidance about the specialisation exams, namely SCJD and SCWCD.
    I searched online and could find only scanty resources on SCJD. Plus it costs a whopping 575$(28750 if u have the dollar rate at 50Rs a dollar). So I need some details on both these exams and dumps for SCWCD 5.
    Can any of you guys find out details about SCWCD and SCJD if any of your colleagues have/had taken it up?

    P.S : My friends circle are full of Microsoft specialists and sadly no Sun. I also have some really good dumps for SCJP 5.

    Thanks a lot Aryan. A certification is a certification, no matter what. Be it MS or ORACLE or SUN.

    P.S: We JAVA guys tend to hate MS and .NET though!!

    ^^he he. I ask u guys for help and now u guys are asking me to help u.

    Anyways, I booked it at NIIT man. Most NIITs are now PROMETRIC TESTING CENTRES. The assessment is an online one spanning for 210 minutes. There are 72 questions. U need to get 59% to clear the assessment (i.e) 43 questions right. The exam costs 6K or something. I booked it when SUN was giving it at an offer price of 4.5K.

    As for study material, use the SCJP book by KATHY SIERRA and BERT BATES. There is also a book by an author named KHALID MUGHAL you can refer to. Practice the mock exams and exercises given at the end of every chapter and the book as a whole. That will do.

    Also I got dumps from my friend. I did not take them seriously and just glanced through, but on seeing the questions in the exam I was just amazed. The same exact questions from the dump were available at the exam(even the spelling mistakes, beat that).
    A friend of mine went through only the dumps and cleared the assessment with 92%.

    Hope I have cleared ur doubts. If you have anything else, post it here. I will try to help you out.

    @Mithun: Buddy, if u want I can email u the dumps. If u have the capability of mugging up just use them and the certification will be a cakewalk.
