Hi All,

I cleared scjp1.4 last week, and want to upgrade my certification to 1.5.
Can anyone guide on this.I have some queries about this. Do i need to write all exam or only those topics which are newly added?

With Regards,

You can refer to this link to get more information SCJP 5.0 in the following link.

You have to take all the topics (SCJP 5.0) but the difference is number of questions (42).

Hi Rajeswari, What is the difference(syllabus wise) bettween SCJP 1.4 & 1.5.(only new API's of 1.5 added). Which one is best for begineers/freshers ?

Hi Krishnan,
You can find the difference between the syllabus of Java 1.4 and 1.5 from the link -

Though SCJP 1.4 is easy, I would prefer that you can take SCJP 5.0 as this is the latest edition and you can also keep yourself technically updated.

These questions (and more) are addressed in our SCJP FAQ.
