OCPJP 6 or 7 ?

I've been programming in Java for a few years now.
Soon I am planning to take a OCP exam, to improve the value of my CV.
My question is - should I go for OCP 6, which requires just one exam, or is it better to do a OCA7 and wait for OCP7 to be relased?

What is your opinion?

Hello Arkadiusz Janicki,

Welcome to CodeRanch!

IMHO, the best thing would be to go for the latest available exam - i.e. OCPJP 7.

Now, as you've said, its still in beta phase. So, what you can do is - give OCAJP 7 and wait for final version of OCPJP 7 comes out (chances are that it'll be out soon now).

Or, other option is - clear OCPJP 6 and then give OCPJP 7 upgrade exam. This upgrade exam is not beta (but final version).

However, again, if you ask me, I would go with first path - OCAJP 7 + OCPJP 7.

I hope this helps.

Also, for further questions, I would suggest to SearchFirst - because lot of people are having similar questions, and chances are that you will get answer just by searching. If not, then of course, you can ask the question
