I was wondering if the certificate or logo would be different if I took an upgrade exam versus complete exam.
It seems the upgrade exams have fewer questions and require the prerequisite of being SCJP 1.2. But do the questions in the upgrade exam solely focus on the new features added in that version of Java ( say Java 1.5) ? Can I add SCJP 1.5 to my credentials irrespective of what exam I took ( upgrade or took the whole exam from scratch) ?
Any insights are greatly appreciated. Thanks, Archana
