I have little confusion on taking a test.
Right now am preparing with K&B book on Java 5.
Would it be advisable to take SCJP 1.6?

I am much determined to take on 1.5 but bit afraid it might look as old version in Resume.

I would really appreciate your suggestions friends.

Go for 1.5. There are very few extra topics in 1.6.

i think, doing SCJP 1.6 is better. and there isn't any big different, just a small difference is there
follow the links to get more information ... SCJP 1.6 , SCJP 1.5.

i did SCJP 1.6 but most of the mock exams that i did on SCJP 1.5 then referred the extra things...

Good Luck....

Go for SCJP 5 if not feeling confident in new topics. SCJP 6 pass percentage is 65, while SCJP 5 was 59%. That can make or break the deal, considering the nature of questions

Your very early congrats gives me positive omen
I hope, soon I will get "Congrats" for my result.

Jesper

Guess Krishna's wish is because of my thread in results sub-forum (which is however moved later)
