I'm preparing for the Java 5 programmer certification test and i had a few questions. Firtly I was thinking of writting a few programs..is it preferrable to use NetBeans over Eclipse or does it not matter with regard to the test. Seondly If i'm completely new to java and have some basic programming experience in C and C++ how long do you think will it take me to get prepared for this test. any help and advice appreciated.

havent gotten a reply from anyone yet...can any1 provide any help on which ide to use.
It may matter in that I have had several emails from people who suggested that some of my mock exam questions generated errors. It turned out that Errors were generated under eclipse but not the bare JDK. On balance I recommend using the bare JDK to ensure exact compatability.
