i am working on Java with Struts platform .so which exam shuld i prepare for ?
The Khalid Mughal book is for SCJP 1.4. The new K & B book is for SCJP 5.0.
Yes, the books cost money, but the authors get only a small percentage of that money to use to pay their rent and eat. Personally I bought the books out of the money I get paid for being a Java Programmer.
We do not provide links to illegal copies of books.
The SCJP 1.4 or SCJP 5.0 certifications both enable you to go on to the next level certifications. But you must first pass one of them.
The Developer certification needs an application written using the SCJP 5.0 compiler but not necessarily the new Java 5.0 features. For the other Web Component Developer, Business Component Developer etc, certifications, you can choose between 1.4 or SCJP 5.0. (at the time of writing).
