Hi friends
i want to write SCJP exam
i came to know that there are SCJP 1.2 , SCJP1.4 and SCJP 1.5
i came across some syllabus and i feel SCJP1.4 is better suit for me because most of the topics like Exceptions, collections,Garbage Collection, threads etc are very usefull in realtime(now i am working for a small company).

i tried for book by Kathy sierra for SCJP1.4, it is not available on market
only Kathy sierra SCJP1.5 is available.

My doubts are:
is sun conducting SCJP1.4?
if so,is my choice is good?(feel free to advice)
let me know from where i can get kathy sierra's SCJP1.4 book

any help greatly cherished
Mallik

I would do SCJP 1.5. because this version is more recent and deals also with your topics.

I agree with Mr.Reiko, for the same reasons he mentioned.
Also remember that programming with J2SE 5.0 is much easier, as it contains new stuff like Generics, and etc...

Take a deeper look at the changes made in J2SE 1.5, comparing it with 1.4, to decide which version suites you more.

You can find the new features of J2SE 1.5 here.

Best of luck ...

Hi Mallik

For SCJP1.4 best book is Khalid Mughal. I am also preparing for it.

You can find kathy sierra's book for SCJP 1.4 at Amazon - SCJP 1.4

I just bought that book, I recomend you to buy an used one, they're in perfect condition and you can save some dollars.
