73 % is a very nice score...u mad or what thinking to retake the test ???

all the javaranchers say "a pass is a pass" i.e. many a times peoply are happy that they it with any marks.

anyway, its quite time for you to go for SCJWCD

Move 'em on!
When SCJP 1.4 (or is it 5.0? - in which case it is a good score) is way out of date, then consider an upgrade to the current version.

First off, congratulations Jonny! 73% is an awesome score.

I have a question along the same lines as the one you posed. For anyone who would like to chime in, does it really matter which version of the SCJP test we took? I know the most current cert is for 5.0; I'm certified on 1.4. Does this make me look somehow less desirable to a potential employer? At what point should I retest on a newer version? Sorry, just had a bunch of random neural firings.
I agree. Here's the link:
