I passed the original exam back in 2001 and I now need to get certified on the latest version with 1.4.

Does anyone know if the 310-082 exam is the same as the 310-081 exam? The 082 version is the upgrade exam and it is $50 cheaper. My guess was that they simply gave it a different number to allow upgrading for a cheaper price.

Does anyone know if the newer exam is significantly different from the older exam? For the original exam, I pretty much crammed on the Professional JSP book and memorized a lot of stuff from the appendix. Is this still the way to go?

Is the Professional JSP 2nd Edition still a relevant resource? My thought was to cram on that book again and look up the changes that were added for the 1.3 and 1.4 versions.

Obviously I would need to take the mock exams as well. I tried the Java Ranch one today and got a 64. I guess I didn't forget everything

Thanks for any help you can offer.

I am also preparing for the upgrade exam. I guess the number of questions is also less in this, but I guess the questions would mostly be around the new concepts.

I am using HF Servlets for my preparation.

I have picked up the HF book as well and it is a good read so far. When I studied for the original exam there was NOTHING available since it was a new exam. This book will mean less API memorizing than I had the first time.

If the exam has fewer questions and a different focus, then I will need to take the full exam. Does anyone know the answers to my original post for certain?

Just for anyone else that has the same question as I did. I called Sun Training and they told me that the Upgrade exam is a different exam.
