Today I visited the Sun Site and found the No of questions for the SCJP 5 (310-055) exam to be 60 instead of 72 . I just had no clue that it had changed. Even the Learnkey
MasterExam has a set of 72 questions.


I am worried now , has the difficulty level been increased as the no of questions have been
reduced but exam duration is the same.

PLEASE REPLY.

There had been some recent changes in the SCJP exam. More information can be found here. I would recommend you to go for SCJP 6 instead of SCJP 5...

Even I would suggest you to go for SCJP 6, they are both almost same. Why not go for the latest??

You can always check the current status of the SCJP exam (in your case SCJP 5) on sun's site. Again I would recommend you Simran and rushikesh to go for SCJP 6 instead of SCJP 5...
