I have a generic voucher bought for $135 promo exam. This voucher is open for 1.2 or 1.4. The Sun sales encouraging me to take 1.4 since there is also an upgrade exam for 1.4 ($118) if I passed only the 1.2. The validity of voucher is 1 year from now, so they are saying I have more time to review.
The thing is I am only prepared for 1.2. I bought Java 1.2 Exam Cram and JQPlus 1.2 as my reviewer and I planning to take the 1.2 this May.
I need an advice from you expert guys out there. I really can't afford to lose another $135 bucks. Please help me to decide.
Thanks.

Thanks. But if I passed 1.2 is it prerequisite to take the 1.4 before I can take the Dev Exam?
