The marking system is slightly different between the two exams (6 has more questions, but a higher pass rate or something like that; the details are in the FAQ, but that seems to be down just now). You can get some details from Sun.

Regardless of which one is "harder", I have chosen to do SCJP6. Java 1.6 is the current version, so the qualification will remain valid for longer. I don't see much point in passing an exam on a version that is deprecated.

When do you want to sit the exam? You may wish to consider the new SJP PLus exam (it's only in beta at the moment).
