Hello TR.Priya,
Welcome to the Ranch. Well of course theres a big confusion amongst many people appearing for the exam.

But as far as I know, I went thru link (don't remember it's name) which said that SCJP 1.5 is relatively new and very few people are going for it at the moment.

The big wave, i.e..the majority of people interested in appearing 4 the Java certification are taking up the SCJP 1.4 as that is the most popular version of the certification.

Even companies consider people with SCJP 1.4 in a large majority.

Hope that clears ur doubts. Even I'm appearing for the SCJP 1.4 and I also feel that it's the best choice...unless some very very advanced version of Core Java certification comes up !! =)

Lastly, u can take up the SCJP1.4 as a stepping stone 2 more advanced Java certifications like SCJD or SCWCD...that's what my plan is !!

Hope this helps !!


<strong><br />Cheers !!<br /> <br />Sherry<br /></strong><br />[SCJP 1.4]
