I'm a SCJP for Java 1.4, and I'm planning to do the SCJP 5.0 exam.

Which choise is better, do the SCJP 5.0 Exam or the Upgrade Exam?
What's the diference?


Thanks

If you wish, you could take the upgrade exam because:
1. SCJP Tiger upgrade exam costs less ($75 USD vs $150 USD)
2. SCJP Tiger upgrade contains less questions

In general, both normal and upgrade exams share the same objectives, and the only difference will be the difference between SCJP 1.4 and SCJP Tiger.

No, but the marjority should be focus on J2SE Tiger.

Thanks Nicholas, I think that the upgrade exam is the better choise because its cost less than the normal exam, and if I pass I will have the same certificate.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
