1.4 isn't an exact subset of 1.5, though many questions are the same.

Welcome to JavaRanch!

Mock exams for 1.4 could be of some benefit in preparing for 1.5. However, you need to know what the differences are between versions. For example, in 1.4 it would be a compiler error to try and assign an int literal to an Integer reference, but in 1.5 this would autobox. If you're not aware of these differences, you might be confusing yourself.
