Is there any book or reference tailored to the Standard Edition 5.0 Upgrade Exam (CX-310-056)?

Cheers,

Renato

Thanks for the prompt reply.

Any other book where what is in the update exam (and what is not) is clearly stated? And almost all with mock exams for the upgrade certification only?

Thanks again

Renato

I would be interested in an 'upgrade' exam focused study guide/book as well.

Does anyone know of any documentation that specifically says what is on the upgrade exam and what is not?

The upgrade exam and the regular exam have the same requirements, which is why there is not a specific listing only for the upgrade. The differences between the exams are length and concentration - the upgrade is shorter and only concentrates on the Java SE 5.0-specific topics. (Since, in theory, you've passed the areas that deal with prior versions of Java and don't need to be quizzed on them.)

Hope that helps.
