    Default Java Certification

    So, I'm currently taking this CS602 class (Advanced Java Programming) at my school. "Advanced" is a bit of an overstatement in my opinion, especially for a masters course... most of this stuff I could do in my sleep in high school. I ended up getting a 97 on the midterm (highest in the class). The professor mentioned that Java Certification might be a good idea for me to consider, since I could probably pass the exam(s) relatively easily. I don't really know too much about the certification, though. Is it worth it? Is it difficult? Do employers really look at it? Does one go through oracle or someone else for this? I have a load of questions. I googled for some basic information, but then decided it'd be better to ask here. So, any information (general or specific) is greatly appreciated. Also links to information. Let me know! Thanks.

    They are administered by Pearson VUE these days (not sure if anyone else still runs them).
    Somewhere down the right hand side will be the Oracle Java link.

    Any qualification is worth it, especially in the current environment. And it's not an overly complex test (multiple choice, though some are sods).
    Be sure to go through as many dummy runs as you can fit in.

    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.

    Don't click on URLs to know what it is. Just hover the mouse over it and look at the URL that, if you use a proper browser, will be displayed somewhere (probably at the bottom of the browser).
