Hi all,

I am planning to write SCJP 1.5 exam soon, i just started preparing for the exam.How long will it take to prepare completely(i am asking about the minimum time)? I have one more query . some members are posting messages that they have passed SCJP 5.0. Is SCJP 5.0 and SCJP 1.5 are the same? if not which will be the better option?

SCJP 5.0 and SCJP 1.5 are the same thing, yes.

How long it takes you to prepare depends on your experience and the speed with which you can learn the material that you don't already know. If you're comfortable with Java 5.0 programming, including the new language features and most of the exam topics, then you might possibly pass the exam without much studying at all. If you've never programmed before, then it will probably take at least a few months for you to prepare.

It took me several intensive months to prepare.
