Hi all,as i am going to take the scjp 310-055 on this saturday that is October 10 2009.i saw an upgraded version of exam 310-055 to 310-056.so now i am confused whether to take 310-055 scjp or 310-056.can you please guide me in this aspect so that i can decide on this as i am going to give the exam on on 10 of october 2009.I have made preparation for the scjp 310-055 already.
There are two types of SCJP exams, first time exam and upgrade exams. The 310-056 exam is for those who are already SCJP. If you are not SCJP, then you can take either 310-055 (SCJP 5) and 310-065 (SCJP 6). I would recommend going for SCJP 6 but for that you'll need a couple of days study. The difference between SCJP 5 and 6 is given here...

To make it clear: 310-056 is not an "upgraded version" of 310-055.
310-055 is the full SCJP 5 exam.
310-056 is the SCJP 5 upgrade exam. It is only for people who are already SCJP certified, but with an older version, and who want to update their certificate to SCJP 5 level. If you have never done the SCJP before, then this exam is not for you - you should do 310-055.
310-065 is the full SCJP 6 exam.
310-066 is the SCJP 6 upgrade exam, similar to 310-056. You must be already SCJP certified (with an older version) to be eligible for this exam.
My advice: Do the 310-065 (full SCJP 6 exam). There's really no reason to do the older SCJP 5 exam instead of SCJP 6. The difference between SCJP 5 and 6 is only small.
