Taking a look at the Tomcat page on Wikipedia here it says the latest 5.x release is 5.5.34.
Would there be any reason not to use the latest 5.x version for OCPJWCD i.e. use 5.5.34 instead of 5.5.28?
Taking a look at the Tomcat page it has the following:
Apache Tomcat 5.5.x supports the same Servlet and JSP Specification versions as Apache Tomcat 5.0.x.
There are significant changes in many areas under the hood, resulting in improved performance, stability, and total
cost of ownership. Please refer to the Apache Tomcat 5.5 Changelog for details.
So, from that I gather that there is no change in the specification in any of the 5.x versions. So it seems it would make sense to use the latest 5.x.?

Cheers for the reply. This is the conclusion I came to myself. It would be worth updating the FAQ to state that the latest 5.X version can be used so as to avoid any confusion.

That is the page I linked to in my post above - it doesn't actually say what spec that Tomcat 5.X implements. It mentions what every version of Tomcat other than 5.X implements - which I found strange.
If you look at the documentation for 5.5 located here http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/index.html, it outlines what spec it implements.
