Well, if you go for the 1.4 and then the upgrade, then that will cost you more money.

I suggest the 5.0 exam because it would be a better learning experience for you in learning the new features of Java 5.0

I believe Khalid Mughal is good if you go for 1.4. I will suggest go for scjp 1.5 and follow the book by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates. It's a must study for 1.5.

I suggest to go for SCJP 5.0.Any how you have to learn Java 5.0 after couple of months. Its better to get familiar now itself.

All the best!!
