SCJP 1.4 or 5.0?

Hello all.

I've been studying for the SCJP 1.4 test, and I am eighty to ninet percent ready to take the test. (Truth be told, I could probably do some mocks and pass the test, but probably not with a high score.)

I see now that SCJP 5.0 is now available.

My question is this: would it be worth a little extra time to prepare for the 5.0 test now, or go ahead with the 1.4 test and worry about 5.0 later?

Because I've been focusing on 1.4 for the test, I'm not clear on how much change there has been for 5.0.

Thank you.

As 5.0 is available its always better to go for it.

Even 1.4 is OK. Therz some difference between them. But when u say u r sun certified, people wont ask 1.4 or 1.5

If u are prepared for 1.4 go and take it if u dont have time for preparing for 5.0. If u have some time, please take 5.0.

Hello Dhananjay,

Thanks for responding.

I'm going to go ahead and finish the 1.4 test. Other posts that I have read indicate that preparation materials for SCJP 5.0 are somewhat scarce right now, and I don't want to wait until they are more readily available.

Thanks again for your input.
