I am not going to argue whether or not Java is superior or inferior to C and C++.I personally think it is inferior but my question stands from a pure practical standpoint.How useful is that Sun certification in terms of increasing probability of getting a job? I do have about 11 months of C programming but I never had to deal with OOP concepts. I like C and I was looking forward to starting C++ but I also wanna get a job.Will that help? if it will, what could be a required time period to study? Thanks guys, I appreciate your responses.
