My problem is how long sun will going to offer 1.4 exam
If I studied for 1.4 and if the exam is not available it�s a waste o time

Its better to opt for 1.5 . I think it will be some how valuble than 1.4 since its going to cover lot of new topics... we should keep updating our knowledge towards new things.... when u have fresh vegetables available in the market why you want to buy old vegetables???

I am also going for 1.5.

Just its my suggestion.. make your own decision.
Best of luck..

Thanks for the information rdhan
Yes now I feel it�s better to go for the java 1.5. Any Way do you guys have any knowledge about the books available for 1.5 Exam.
I looked at the market but all the SCJP books were covering 1.4 Exams.
And I already have the K&B java 1.4 Book.
Is it ok if I study that book until 1.5 books available in the market?

Please provide your comments.
