This article is a first-hand report about preparing for the SOACP certification and passing the exam. I decided to do this certification after I met Thomas Erl at the SOA Symposium 2010 in Berlin, Germany (see this older blog). I will tell you, why I like this certification and why (in my opinion) it makes a lot of sense. But I will also criticize some small details.

Which one should I do?
What IT certification should I do next? This is what I wondered within the last weeks, after I passed the SCJP 6 successfully some months ago. I surfed the internet a lot to find information about possible IT certifications.
How to pass the SCJP 6
Yesterday I passed the test for “Sun Certified Java Programmer (SCJP 6)” with 83 percent. Here are my experiences about doing the certification and the hints I can give you.
What should you keep in mind before starting your preparation for the exam?
– The preparation is a lot more time-consuming than I thought, also for experienced java developers.
– You really improve your programming skills a lot (As many other people, I doubted this fact when I started learning for the exam and looking at these tricky, non-practical code snippets).
