Does any one know how the java 5 exams differes from java 6.
A quick scan of the suned pages for each exam seems to have about the same coverage.

I will be giving a SCJP study group at work. Since 6 is new and there are no study material, I am wondering if the scjp5 study books will be good enough for the 6 exam.

Based on that discussion, I suppose it would be more worthwhile to go for the 1.6 version, since Sun is now providing vouchers for this exam. I recently bought both of Kathy and Bert's books(Head First, SCJP Study guide) which are both for version 1.5. But with a little more careful observation of the changes between the two exams, following the objectives would be highly beneficial and then I would just shoot for the 1.6. Going for the 1.5, then taking an upgrade to 1.6 just seems like a waste of money to me.. but that's just me.

I actually have my scjp 5 so the upgrade is fine for me. However I am mentoring several developers for thier SCJP at work. It makes more sense for me to have them prepare for 6 instead of 5.

Since there is no SCJP6 study material.... Looks like I'll have them study for 5 then at the end try to find and teach the differences.

Well then I can test for my upgrade, and they can test for SCJP6

Thats great idea. scjp 1.6 has very little difference from scjp 1.5.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
