Hi,
I have the SCJP for Java 5 and was wondering what's new in the SCJP 6 exam and if it's worth taking the upgrade exam. How often do people update their certifications?

Hello,

Please check scjpfaqs for the difference between
scjp 5 and scjp 6. There is not much difference, only a couples of topics are added which you can do
from the tutorials also. I don't know much about the upgrade exam, hopefully some other person will
be able to answer you better.

Hope this helps,

As you can see in the FAQ, the difference between SCJP 5 and SCJP 6 is very small. It's not really worth the time, money and effort to do the SCJP 6 upgrade exam if you're SCJP 5 certified.
