hi everybody Am aravind, ive completed SCJA last week ,scored 90% 46/51.it took me about a weeks preperation. i just prepared from the net and whizlabs simulator. i thank all the javaranch members for helping me out with scja.
Now i want to go for SCJP. My question is , shall i go for SCJP 1.4 or SCJP 1.5 . i find SCJP 1.5 tougher than 1.4. In 1.5 i find lot of new topics which i did not come across. I have learned only core java in my collage. Not much practical working. Can i do SCJP?
Problem is that i dont have much time. I have to complete SCJP in a weeks time. Iam having placements next week and have to get my resume' ready by then.
Latest version is 1.5 so obviously it would have more value than 1.4 , but, is it ok if i take 1.4 now? , or is it considered outdated?
Well, iam from INDIA ,so any person from INIDA can answer this better i guess, but still, everyone would know whats the value of SCJP 1.4 now. So please tell me is it okay if i go for SCJP 1.4 ?
Hmm. Going to write SCJP in a week's preparation? Sounds tough. Considering that you have studied "Core Java" in college, even SCJP 1.4 sounds tough..
I think it wont be fair if you think you can complete SCJP in a week. If everyone can do that, there would not be any use in Sun having a SCJP exam. Think about this.
Scoring greater than 80% would do good in your resume. But my opinion is to take some time, and prepare yourself for 1.5 exam. Practice a lot. You might clear SCJP by going thro mocks. But you'll face difficulties if you get a job and start coding..
