Hi All,
I have already prepared for SCJP6 and planning to appear in exam within next 2 weeks.

But i am little bit confused thinking whether i should go for OCJPP7 after preparing extra topics included in 7th version.

Please guide me on OCPJP7.

Thanks

If you have already done preparation with version 6 then I suggest you go ahead with SCJP 6. If you are starting fresh, then target OCPJP 7. Take a look at this blog; it might help you.

Then definitely take SCJP 6!

If you want to do this, you should take the "upgrade exam" rather than the full OCPJP 7. The upgrade exam will focus on the new topics. Also, if you took the OCPJP 7, it has OCAJP 7 as a pre-req. Whereas the upgrade exam has SCJP/OCJP 6 (or earlier) as a prereq. Which you'll have in two weeks.

hey Chintu Ji,

What Jeanne Boyarsky said is absolutely right, i am agree with that, Your preparation for SCJP 6 is finished, so no need to worry about OCPJP7, First finish your SCJP 6 exam then you can Update your knowledge to Java SE 7 with Upgrade exam.


good luck for your SCJP 6 exam..

Hi Chintu,
I suggest you go for OCPJP 7. you can expect a question from you potential employer during interview that why you have taken SCJP 6 when newer version is available.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
