I passed SCJP 6 with 58 correct answers out of 72 today.

The book of Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates is a must! It helped me a lot (although I have only the Java 5 version). There were only a few Java 6 specific questions (regarding java.io.Console).

I'd also like to thank to all of you who have contributed to the forums at JavaRanch.

Best regards,
Krisztian

There were a lot of Thread and Collection related questions (I don't know the exact number). Actually I was a bit surprised myself. However I didn't have any NavigableMap and NavigableSet related stuff.

I bought Enthuware's mock exam and did all of the tests on last weekend (792 questions). The real exam was very similar.

There isn't much difference. If you go with SCJP 6 you hace to learn some of the new Java API features, which basically means Console, NavigableMap and NavigableSet.

I studied from the SCJP 5 book and practiced Enthuware's SCJP 6 mock exams, so i think you can try version 6, too.
