I still have 2 months to go, but I think I will go ahead with 1.4.....cos 1.I dont have the required material 2. I dont have JDK 1.5 (not a really gr* reason ) 3. From one of the replies to my topic Why take SCJP 1.5?, i think, it hardly makes any difference in ur CV if u r a 1.4 or 1.5 certified... 4. I have come halfway through preparing for 1.4....dont wish to go back to scratch
My whole department is studying for SCJP 1.4 using your book as a study guide. We have weekly "Lunchtime Learnings" and try to cover one chapter per session. I hope we can get everyone certified within the next few weeks.
I'm going for version 1.4 because I have all the materials and cannot afford to by all the new editions for 1.5. It would bother me to waste the books I have on 1.4. But if I pass 1.4 then I would probably start thinking about 1.5 later.
I am studying for SCJP 1.4. I believe Java 1.4 is more widely used in companies than Java 5. I think cracking SCJP 1.4 is easier than SCJP 5. Since SCJP 1.4 has been around a long time, it's easier to get study materials and mock exams. I personally feel that once you are a SCJP, it really doesn't matter whether it's version 1.4 or 5.
I've been preparing for the last few months to give up scjp 1.4. I'm still half way thru. yet to start my mocks now. Every time I start my preparation, break at some point and start from the first again. Hope I'll do it this time
Hi. I plan to take the exam in the first week of July. I havent bought my voucher yet, will do so in a few days time. I have been studying for 3 months now, though not regularly. Good luck to the rest of you!

I am taking scjp 1.4 exam. I think scjp 1.5 mostly concentrate on the additional topics included and neglects the actual topics of scjp 1.4 and the topics in scjp 1.4 are used much in real time when compared to additional topics in scjp 1.5
