I think you guys might recall that if you took the 5 exam over the last couple of months, there were some "extra", unscored questions on your exam. That was an informal "beta" for the SCJP 6 exam, since the SCJP 6 is such a small change from the SCJP 5.

NEW SUN CERTIFIED PROGRAMMER FOR JAVA PLATFORM 6 EXAM
What are the differences between Sun Certified Programmer for Java Platform 5 (CX-310-055) and 6 (CX-310-065) exams?
Questions concerning System.gc() have been removed.
Coverage of the java.io.Console class has been added.
Coverage of navigable collections has been added.
Several of the previous objectives have been strengthened (so you can expect more questions and more detailed questions on them). These strengthened objectives include: exception handling, collection classes and collection interfaces, assertions, threads, and flow control.

Christian, it's stated that a bunch of topics was strengthened for the SCJP 6 exam, so could you compare the toughness of the mock questions you were using to prepare to the exam with the real questions? Also, were there any seemingly new topics (save the Navigables and Console) that you were unprepared for?
