Well SCJP 1.3 is still available. And there is always the upgrade exam. So, if I were you I would not be worried about it.

That's the 1.2 exam, not the 1.3 exam (there never was a specific 1.3 exam).

Not sure if Sun will discontinue that, I've not seen it announced AFAIK...

Why not? Just if you feel comfortable to take an old exam.

I guess shuld means shut (as in "shut up") and im means in but if I substitute those in your rant I get nonsensical results.

I guess it should be:

Seems better, right?

Anway, whether you are going to upgrade or not depends on the needs. If you think you need SCJP Tiger, then go ahead for it. Otherwise, just put it aside.

Mr. Bran just decide the product u are going to purchase (e.g exam 310-035 and take good care for the objectives given for that exam... u can evn use a.2 for preparation but the thing will be that so many things are depricated that u must go with the most suitable one version. 1.4 is still "in fashion".

I know a guy who fairly recently took the 1.2 exam because he wanted to demonstrate GUI knowledge, which is not in 1.4.
 
I found a beautiful pie. And a tiny ad:
