hi everyone i have completed course in niit for java with j2ee. i am presently working. i have a voucher for scjp exam but i am not sure which exam would be better, 1.5 or 1.4 for me? my voucher last date is feb. but i would like to write the exam by december. i have already purchased k&b book for 1.5. but i have heard that 1.5 is seriously tough. please help me decide and pls suggest which books to go through.
Hi, Well, it definitely is tough, I have been preparing for the 1.5 exam for a few weeks now and it definitely is a lot different on the tougher side than 1.4
The changes introduced in 1.5 are the ones that create the problem all the time, when I take mock ones. All this has delayed my plans to take the exam, but still, it was too good to have studied 1.5 new features, as I was not working on JDK 1.5 and am glad I chose 1.5 over 1.4. K&B book is very good for it.

I just cleared mine today and I would definitely suggest you to go for 1.5, it might take more time, but when you are out of it, you would be a better person :-)
