I hope i will get the big help, like i got previously. For some time i am preparing for 1.2. But when i go through "Sun certification results", i could see the success of many people in 1.4 exam and i could see rarely people who are appearing for 1.2. So i though of taking 1.4 exam rather than 1.2. I need your help, to answer the below questions,
1) Is 1.2 is better or 1.4
2) What more to be concentrated for 1.4, other than the 1.2 syllabus.
3) From where can i get the mock exams for 1.4.
Please gide me.
Thanks in Advance,

I just started the exam preparation not too long ago myself. My decision to go with the 1.4 exam rather than the 1.2 was because it is a newer release. I also focus more on web related Java so I do not need the GUI components that are covered in the 1.2 exam.

Look under Certification FAQ , u will find the difference btn 1.2 and 1.4
Sun is phasing out 1.2 so many people are taking 1.4 instead.

SCJP 2 1.4
I agree. Here's the link:
