Hi charan sri ,
I think if you have time to practice and you can really work hard.
you should go for the latest certification which would be helpful for your future.

SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 2 Platform 5 Study Guide (Exam 310-055), scheduled for release on Sept. 30 2005. The prior edition of the same title is for 310-035, and is probably not up to date.
