Hi all,
I am willing to take Java Certified Programmers Exam. I am little bit confused with the Product which to take(given by SUN).
Please help me. I am Listing the topics for each product given in the sun website.
There are two products 1.4 and 1.2
The product ID's are CX-310-035 and CX-310-025 resp..
CX-310-035
-----------
Section 1: Declarations and Access Control
Section 2: Flow control, Assertions, and Exception Handling
Section 3: Garbage Collection
Section 4: Language Fundamentals
Section 5: Operators and Assignments
Section 6: Overloading, Overriding, Runtime Type and Object Orientation
Section 7: Threads
Section 8: Fundamental Classes in the java.lang Package
Section 9: The Collections Framework
----------------------------------------------------------------
CX-310-025:
-----------
Section 1: Declarations and Access Control
Section 2: Flow Control and Exception Handling
Section 3: Garbage Collection
Section 4: Language Fundamentals
Section 5: Operators and Assignments
Section 6: Overloading, Overriding, Runtime Type, and Object Orientation
Section 7: Threads
Section 8: The java.awt Package

I don't find Assertion in product CX-310-025 but present in CX-310-035.
Moreover CX-310-025 includes testing in AWT and IO packages but this is not in CX-310-035.

Dear Sivaraman,
SCJP 1.4 is the latest version and thus you must appear for it.
You may want to check out my article and tutorial written for IBM on SCJP 1.4. Below are the URLs for them:

Then this means that AWT and IO will not be asked in the certification?
