If you are familiar with java or already did take the scjp1.4, you can build on your experience and use the java Language Spec. & some available books on java tiger, like the one i actually use which is brief and concise but doesnt contain much details. (Java tiger : a develoepr's notebook)

Besides that, If you have some mock exams of scjp1.4 you can use them also but not for a long time, a period of 1-2 days is sufficient to refresh the memory.

For Generics, I suggest you read http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5/pdf/generics-tutorial.pdf. It's a comprehensive tutorial.

The 5th edition is J2SE 1.4 only, the 6th edition is for Tiger!
