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 6.0, there isn't much differences between the two, you can follow these link to clear some of your doubts with regard to 6.0 http://www.javabeat.net

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....

SCJP 1.6

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.


Guess Krishna's wish is because of my thread in results sub-forum (which is however moved later)
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
