Hi, Welcome to Javaranch
This forum itself is the best source for Java certifications
But are you asking about SCJP for Java 6.0.
there is some upgrade and the K & B book should be out for it soon.If its already out, i have no idea, but you can start with any K & B book you have, whether its Head first or the certification book.

Hope this helps

Thanks for reply

I understood SCJP for Java 6.0 Exam is expensive and resources low.
Therefore I decided to have SCJP 5.0. Is it worth? I need your further help

thanks

Yes the SCJP 5.0 is certainly of worth and let me tell you that even the SCJP 1.4 exam still holds ground. It is not like that a new exam is of more worth, only a few objectives change.
Anyways you can opt any one of the two, only thing is since the 6.0 exam is introduced recently, as you said resources are less.
So proceed with your decision and put your preparation to the best.


Hope this helps

I'd say that most people the Java 6 exam is the way to go. It's almost identical to the Java 5 in terms of things to study for, and you get the benefit of it being the most current exam. I think that both exams are the same cost - not sure - but I think so.

hi all

I have two questions in the moment. If you could expend your valuable time it is great!

I install NetBean IDE,is it suitable for Practice Java coding for SCJP?

I do not have a clear idea about Classpath

What is the purpose

How it is set in Win Xp

thanks a lot

I would recommend not to use an IDE if you're just starting out. Learning the IDE distracts you from learning Java, and removes you from several issues that you need to understand (like the classpath).

Hi, first of all, please start a new topic in different post.
If you are new to Java programming, I would like to recommend dont use an IDE in the very beginning, instead use an editor like notepad on windows.
classpath is meant for specifying the path where the compiler will find the necessary class files.
Next if you are using Netbeans, you dont need to set the classpath separately.


Hope this helps
