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OCJP5 is obsolete, so prepare for OCJP6 exam.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

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.

Why go for 6 instead of 7?

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.
