Prove Your Java Knowledge!

I can already hear the critics but let me start by saying that certifications are obviously not the be-all-end-all to knowing anything.

BUT, I am a firm believer that you get out of them , what you put into them.

If you put in the time and are disciplined in your objectives, there is no reason for not knowing and understanding your subject matter.

Having said that, I came across a few good websites that may help you on your endeavor of getting a certification in Java.

The first being the Associate Level Certification or Java SE 8 Programmer I, exam 1Z0-808.

In any event, I hope that you’ll find the following information helpful at improving your careers in testing, automation or development.

Either way, good luck friend.
