Hi Everybody,

I am quite comfortable with core java and J2EE concepts. Only thing I need is to practice a lot in the possbile question patterns in SCJP.
I wish to take the SCJP exam and I am confused as to which one to take. Is it SCJP 5 or SCJP 6? I previously did not take any of those exams.
Also I need some suggestion to buy a book for the preparation. Do I need to buy a book that is for SCJP 5 or SCJP 6? Do they really differ?Please help me in this.

Many people would recommend the SJCP 6 exam, since it is the latest. I'd suggest getting practice in the new features of Java 6.

As for books, SCJP for Java 6 (or something along those lines) by Sierra and Bates is pretty much standard around here.

The time to prepare depends on you.But take your time and do not rush for the exam.Also I would recommend you for SCJP 6
