Thanks a lot. That relieves me a lot! I will follow your suggestion.
Praveena - I am sure to get some flak but I'd definitely say take the 1.4 ! Our understanding is that the 1.2 is about to be retired by Sun, and it is relatively old ("these are internet times - baby"). I also think that while the questions are a bit harder than the ones on 1.2, the objectives are more focused. Personally, I'd prefer to study for the 1.4 than the 1.2 - not having to study AWT and I/O is a big relief!
