It seems to me that SCJP 1.4 is much easier than SCJP 1.2 as it does not cover many topics that are in SCJP 1.2 ?

which one will me move valuable for me ?

Hi
Well i had the same assumption that the 1.2 was quite harder cause of the reading requirements. But i guess the reason why it was different was because they wanted the 1.4 exam to concentrate more on Language(meaning you get to understand how the language is and how it works). 1.2 exams contained stuff on GUI and IO streams which were more of applied Java. Anyways i hope i answered your question. It actually depends on your choice. 1.2 exams tests GUI and IO and 1.4 doesnt!
Fellow ranchers does anyone know if the 1.2 exams would ever be retired?
Saheed.
