Hi Amrita,

Check out the Java Ranch FAQ. It gives information on the differences between SCJP5 and SCJP6

With "Sun Certified Java Programmer (1.6)", do you mean a book?

The most used book is the book by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates, commonly known as "K&B". Have a look at our SCJP FAQ.

SCJP 5 passing criteria - 59%
SCJP 6 passing criteria - 65%

So I think it is 6% harder

(Wow what a calculation done by me )

@Amrita
I would suggest you to go for 6.
The Certfication guide by Kathy Sierra should be good enough...
Other that you could also try some sample test papers on the net...

Well Amrita I didn't follow any of the paid mock exams. I just read the Khalid Mughal book along with the K&B book and then did the K&B Master Exam, Inquisition, Examlab, and a list of other free mock exams available on the internet. The main recipe behind success in SCJP is being conceptually clear. If you know how GC works, then the questions will look like a piece of cake. And with a lot of practice, the questions on the exam will not be able to confuse you. The questions available on most of the mock exams are tougher than the real SCJP exam, so if you get a decent score on the mock exams, then you'll definitely succeed on the real exam

Hi everyone,

Anybody could explain me why a inner class object can use the local variables of the method the inner class is in when these ones are declared final.

It's confused to get it when you think that the scope of a local variable is limited to the method the variable is declared in. so, any special reason??

Thank you
