Is Java 5.0 actually 1.5?

I am new to Java, and wonder if I should take CX-310-055 or CX-310-035?

I know CX-310-055 is for Java 5.0, and CX-310-035 is for Java 1.4.

How strange: According to Sun's website, Java 5.0 = Java 1.5. Why jumping from 1.4 right to 5.0?

The 1.x naming scheme is the old naming scheme and a few years ago Sun changed the naming scheme.

Sorry about this strange question, but if you are new to java...why do you want to be certified, if you doesn't even know what is java about?

Thanks, Pavel:

Trying to understand can be a good start, don't you think so?
