SCJP - upgrade exam or the complete exam

Hi Folks,

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

If you are not SCJP, then you cannot give the upgrade exam directly. It is for those who are SCJP from a previous version of the exam.

There is no difference in the logo or certificate when you do the upgrade exam.

The upgrade exam is meant for people who already are SCJP certified and who want to become certified for a newer Java version.
