Sorry to raise an already much debated subject again......

Everyone seems to be suggesting the 1.4 exam is better. The feedback I am getting from my colleagues is that the additonal topics added to the 1.4 exam are not particularly useful/widely used in the industry (I can't comment, they're new to me). Their advice seems to be to stick with the 1.3 exam as it covers everything that's relevant.

Would anyone agree with this or is the absolute consensus to always go for the 1.4 exam?

Do employers have a preference or even care?

I'm just starting revision so I'm guessing I could start studying for 1.3 first of all and add the topics for 1.4 later if need be.....

Would be really interested to hear further thoughts on this topic.

Many thanks.

Nicky

I think it is really about topic focus, and deprecated components. I am also hearing that in general the test is more difficult as it really forces you to know the underlying architecture as opposed to memorizing the topics. In the end, I do not think the employers really care, because I believe their focus would be that you took the time to prepare for the exam and that you have a good foundation for which you can build your experience level. This is of course my opinion, as I am contemplating which test to take. I will probably be ready to take the 1.3 version at the end of July (or that is my hope), so I am really thinking hard about which test to take (there is not a book out yet with the new topic arrangement, which causes a problem with my timeline).
