Hello Guys & Gals,

I'm relatively new to Java programming & am in the process of completing Core Java Studies (SL-275). What are the differences between SCJP 1.4 & SCJP 5.0 ??Which exam should I give ?? Can anyone tell me the syllabi for both the exams ??

Welcome to JavaRanch. SCJP 1.4 is for Java 1.4 and SCJP 5 is for Java 5, so SCJP 5 is newer.

Note that the most recent version of Java is Java 6, so Java 1.4 is already two versions behind the current version. If you have to learn it from scratch, go for SCJP 5 / Java 5, because that will become obsolete less quickly.

Java 5 contains a number of new features in the programming language, which you'll have to learn if you go for Java 5.
