Hi all,
I am planning to do some certification in Java. I have some knowledge in Core Java, JSP, Servlet and EJB(very little).

If I want to do any certification, which will be the best to start with?
I have found in web sites, there are so many certifications like SCJA, SCJP, SCJD...

Whether Can I start with SCJP/SCJD? If I want to do certification, which Java Version will be useful? 1.4/1.5/1.6(new)!!

Hi, seeing your experience I think you should start up from SCJP. As it is mandatory for SCWCD, SCBCD, SCJD.
I would say go for 1.5.
1.6 is very fresh and new, and I doubt if there is any exam released for it yet.

I agree. Here's the link:
