Welcome to the Ranch

OCJP5 is obsolete, so prepare for OCJP6 exam. Read our SCJP-FAQ.

Links to mock tests - ScjpMockTests.

Look for guidelines from ranchers who took up the test in the Certification Results forum.

And please refrain from using email as we intend to UseTheForumNotEmail

Hi Jai,

Thanks for your information. Actually I am having SCJP 310 055 kathysierra book. Can I use that book for SCJP 6 exam?

I do not think that you will need any training centres to prepare for the exam if you know how to program in java.

SCJP 5 is old. Go for SCJP 6 or 7. Better go for SCJP 6.

I do not have SCJP 5 book. I have SCJP 6 book. So cannot comment if SCJP 5 book will be sufficient or not.

If you're already scjp certified with old version then you can go for 7 else you need to do first ocja 7 for ocjp 7.

As Saloni said, if you are SCJP 6 certified you can go for SCJP 7 upgrade exam.

Yes. There aren't many new topics on SCJP 6. You just need to study NavigableMap, NavigableSet and Console on your own to bridge the gap. The SCJP 5 book covers the rest. By contrast the SCJP 7 exam is quite different and you'd need to supplement the SCJP 5 book a lot more.

What Jeanne said is absolutely right. You go for SCJP 6 with little bit additional preparation for NavigableMap, NavigableSet and Console.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
