I wanted to get people's thoughts on the relevance of upgrading from the 1.2 to 1.4 SCJP exam. I passed 1.2 in Dec 2002, just before 1.4 became the relevant exam to take. In this: BLOG I pointed out issues re the pricing in Australia - its bloody expensive to take the upgrade exam.
Should I bother?

Don't bother to upgrade to 1.4. Just wait the for the 1.5 version.

I would move on to one of the developers exams. I think they are more relavant to real life.

Yes, I am in process of acquiring the SCBCD cert. Maybe I should wait until SCJP1.5 becomes de rigeur.
Thanks for the advise.
