Hi,

Its always better to take the latest exam. J2SE6.0 is about to be released by this year end so you will have another SCJP exam soon.So my suggestion is always go for the latest exam.

I'd say, despite my usual thought that the latest is probably the best, that you should take whichever you feel more comfortable with. If you use 1.4 in your professional/academic life and know that one better, take the 1.4 exam. Otherwise, prepare for the 5.0 exam.
