Difference between SCJA 1.5 and 1.6

Dear friends,

I have thoroughly prepared for SCJP 1.5, but I feel that it would require me another one month to go for SCJP 1.5 as I deem to take more and more mock tests.

However, in the meantime, I have to appear for an interview after 15 days. I think in this meantime I should take SCJA. I have Cameron's Book for SCJA 1.5. and his mocktest book as well. Should I appear for SCJA 1.5 or 1.6.

What is the basic difference between the two exams. Would 1.5 book that I have suffice for the 1.6 exam as well. I want to clear this test very soon, preferably within 2-3 days.

Mr. Cameron, kindly guide.

Anand, I dont see 2 versions of SCJA exam on SUN site. there is only one version 1.0 !!! am I missing something ??

Also I would say that you need to take lots of mocks for this test too. As you already did preparation for SCJP, you should be fine in 3 (Section 1, 3 and 4) objectives of this exam but you do need preparation in rest of exam objectives which might take some time!!!
