I took scjp5 before last year and failed . I was very new to java at that time. Then i got into a job 6 mths back as junior programmer.I have K&B book for scjp5 which i bought when i took the exam for the first time. I bought a voucher again which will expire on June 30th,2010. I started my prepartion since a week and i hardly get time to read because of my project deadlines.
Today when i want to book my exam date i had lot of questions in my mind...
First of all i was not sure if i can take scjp6 reading my scjp5 book? Also not sure how many questions i can expect in the new topics(java.io.NavigableMap,Console,Set) that were added in scjp6?
Not sure if i need to finish reading the book completely before jumping on mock tests?
Not sure if my two months preparation (reading 1 hr a day) would be enough to crack scjp6 or atleast scjp5 ??
Can someone please advise which exam (5 or 6) would be ideal for me to take in my current situation?
Go ahead with SCJP6 as there difference is very tiny between the two exams. You can just use an online
tutorials for the new topics included. Yes i believe two months preparation is enough to crack SCJP.
