Hi...

Planning to take scjp exam. But in a dilemma whether to take 1.4 or 5. Since 1.4 is much easier and something that i know part of me says do it. but at the same time feel like doing 5 so that i can learn the new concepts. I have no prior experience except programming in college which was 3 years back. What should i do somebody please suggest.

I remember this one was asked previously. I think it should be a FAQ Someone responded very aptly: how are you going to explain in a job interview that you took the older exam? Surely, you would say: I just wanted the easier one.
