hi there,

i decide to become a scjp. but i got some questions:

1. should i do the current exam or is it better to wait for the tiger-exam?
2. if you tell me to do the current exam, are there any real good books from 2004(/2005?) or can i still use the 2002 books?
3. has anyone an idea when the new tiger-exam will arrive in germany?

thanks in advance,

I have started my preparation for SCJP 1.4 this week and plan to move to 1.5 as soon as some mock exams/books are available for it.

For SCJP 1.4 I'am following Kathy/Bert book to start with, and online resources as discussed on this forum.

If you want to wait for tiger then i would suggest that start preparing for 1.5 & if you feel that you can clear beta then registered yourself other wise keep continue your preparation for Tiger .
