Can somebody please guide me??? I came to know about SCJP 1.5 a bit late...and I understand that the exam covers considerably extra topics and the exam's a bit tough. In addition, passing percentage is high and study material is a bit on the lesser side.

I have covered all the 9 topics from K & B book for SCJP 1.4.....but I wish to study for 1.5 and I will be referring K & B book only for the purpose....

1. Can somebody tell me as to what to study from the 1.5 book so that i cover the extra topics while not studying the topics which I have already covered? like which chapters I can blindly skip....
2. I intend to take the exam somewhere in the 1st week of August. I have never worked on Java 5. Any suggestions/comments on whether should I take 1.5 are welcome.

There are quite a few managers in the company that i work for that went " SCJP whats that ?". However there are some people who do recognise the difference in the versions. Do look at the book in my signature. Its the best in the market right now for a SCJP 5 cert. However you might have to dig through it to find out what you need to study extra.
