Hi,
I am appearing for 310-083.
My java knowledge is limited to version 1.4
I have used the book: SCWCD Exam Study Kit by H. Deshmukh, M. Scarpino, J. Malavia.

Do I need to study java 1.5 for 310-083 i.e. SCWCD for jee spec 5.0?

Also please suggest any links for mock tests and exam questions.

Thanks in advance,
Vishal.

I've heard some ranchers saying that there were generics and enhanced for loops at the exam, so it would be better to have at least some basic understanding of what they do. Just a wild guess, but I think that what you'll see at the exam should be easy enough to understand.

I would recommend that you must at least go through some fundamental changes in Java SE 5 like Generics, Autoboxing and Auto-Unboxing of primitives. The following link would help you to get started.

Thank you all for the help...
2 more queries
1) I have read some basics of auto-boxing, and generics from Kathy Sierra's book for scjp 1.5... Will that be enough?
2) Also, a colleague of mine mentioned that one must be SCJP 1.5 for appearing scwcd 1.5 ... is that so? I m scjp 1.4 as of now...
To the best of my knowledge I am eligible to attempt scwcd 1.5 directly without attempting and passing the upgrade to 1.5....

Kindly guide me with this...

Thanks in advance,
Vishal.

Yes.

Any SCJP will do, so you're ok.
