Hey guys!

I just would like to know your opinion about SCJP 5 x SCJP 6

What certification exam would you do and why?

Thank you very much!

Do you see serialization in the objectives?? But before you go for the exam make sure with your prometric center whether they are taking the latest version of the exam or not. Some people have reported that they got some questions from the old objectives because their prometric centers were not taking the up-to date version of the exam.

André, go for SCJP 6, don't even think about going for SCJP 5. If you search the forum, you'll find more than 50 topics with this same question and we recommend to everyone to go for SCJP 6 and not SCJP 5...

Thank you very much guys!

So I just realized that is better do 1.6 version than 1.5 version.

You are right however my affraid is my English because there is no this certification exam in Portuguese yet
in my native language.

Thanks again.




take care!

Ask them if they have any idea how many questions are there on the exam, if they say its 60, then they'll take the new exam. If they don't have any idea whatsoever, then either you should try a different prometric center or learn serialization too i.e. learn everything that's in your book whether its in the objectives now or not...
