I had completed the 1.3 certification in May of 2002 and I am just wondering if the "Upgrade Exam" is for people that have a later version of java and are interested in getting the most current certification which is 1.4. Or do I just take the 1.4 exam?
Also, can anyone recommend a good book for the 1.4 exam - something that is a little more up to date with the 1.4 exam.
Thanks for your help.

Info about the upgrade exam is on Sun's Ed site.
Check out this thread, it discusses the value of taking the upgrade exam: Anyone taken the upgrade exam yet???
(basically... take the SCJD exam instead of upgrading to 1.4 ....)

Makes sense to me. Thanks.
