Not sure if this has been addressed before! I cleared SCJP 1.4 about a year ago and wish to for the 1.5 certification. Which one would be a better choice? -SCJP 5.0 (CX-310-055) or -SCJP 5.0 Upgrade Exam (CX-310-056)
Has anyone taken an upgrade exam? what is the difference betn regular exam and upgrade exam? in terms of 1. level of difficulty 2. preparation 3. any advantage each one has over the other?
I had gone for Whizlab sim for 1.4 and found it very helpful. But the 1.5 sim has very few questions. Should we wait for a while before taking the exam?
Yes I have taken an upgrade exam? My suggestion would be to go with the Upgrade.
In terms of: - 1. Level of difficulty Comparatively the level of difficulty is lower in the Upgrade exam but not much lower. 2. Preparation Preparation should be very simliar between the two exams. But you should already know most of the stuff. 3. Any advantage each one has over the other? Fewer Questions and lower cost
