I’ve been thinking for a while on take the Java Certification exam. I think it would be good for my cv and for my programming skills to have an in depth knowledge of the Java platform. The truth is that the road to become a Java expert is kind of confusing, but maybe this image will help you to understand this path.
Right now my focus is on the Java SE 8 certification that consist in two exams: the OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I and the OCP Java SE 8 Programmer II. If this goes well, I will continue with the Java EE certifications.
