    ...be of any 'use' when applying for a programming/developer job in the near future?

    Just out of curiosity, and to fill a few minutes on a Friday afternoon, I was wondering whether the following OU courses plus a programming cert (SCJP), would help me find a (programming) job or whether I should wait until I gain an HND equivalent (a couple of more courses would be required over '10 - '11) or even the degree itself.

    M263 Building Blocks of Software (theoretical course in programming)
    http://www3.open.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/course/m263.htm

    M255 Java course
    http://www3.open.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/course/m255.htm

    MST121 & MST121, both Maths courses.
    All the courses apart from MST121 are level 2 (second year level)

    Or would it just be seen as an incomplete degree?
     
    Certifications: A+, N+, Sec+
    WIP: CCENT, CCNA
