This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
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.
