    Default I posted something similar in another thread but I think it belongs here too

    Hello everyone :D I am new and looking for some advice! Here is my query and background to it:

    Basically I can go do a few short courses in Java at a nearby college. This is what it entails:

    Java 1

    Introduction to Java and the principles of Object Oriented Programming techniques.

    Java 2

    Developing user interfaces using Java’s Swing libraries.

    Java 3

    Developing professional Java applications which access SQL databases.

    I'm pretty clueless when it comes to Java but have tried to teach myself a little in the past. I really want to try these courses and see if I can learn, I have been told that if I do these courses it means I can take the "Oracle Sun Java Certification" exam. What I would like to know is:

    A] Where could that certification get me? Job wise and also getting into a university
    B] As someone with health problems like depression and chronic fatigue syndrome, how stressful/hard would a job be?
    C] Should you be really good at math?

    Thank you for taking the time to read this, please leave any further advice if you have any :)

    All of those things it will teach you will be very helpful. As for getting into a university with it .. well that I couldnt tell you. Job wise it will look good.
    As a personal preference i would say College is a better way to go then university for programming, cause university is more theory (just my preference).

    Programming can be very stressful; errors and glitches can leave you wanting to smash your computer sometimes.. just got to cool off sometimes lol.

    as for math; i mean being good at it helps, but you dont really need it. Programming is alot of math but its really just basic math, if you did good in like grade 1-9 math youll have no problems.

    Please don't double post.

    I'll lock this one since I think it's better placed in the Jobs Discussion forum.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.
