Oracle Certification Program (Java)

Posted 14 September 2011 - 08:18 AM

Hi, I was wondering if anyone here has taken the Oracle/Sun certification exams focusing on Java SE/EE?

Oracle certification page

And if it helps boost the CV a little?

KYA has taken a couple of the exams. Personally, I haven't taken the exams. As with all certs, they may help you get a foot in the door, but a solid portfolio is worth more than a cert, imo.

For the rest of the world: "CV" is your resume.

True. College is getting kinda stale so I'm just looking for a pick-me-up/challenge.

This. I wouldn't leverage a certificate to make up for a lack of practical experience (work, school, or personal project related). I'd pursue this only once you've gathered up a nice portfolio.
