Differences between 1.2 and 1.4?

Hi all!
I just bought a 310-025 exam book on sale, and after that discovered that a new exam, 310-035 had arrived.
I'm wondering if there are any other differences between the two besides no IO, no AWT, Assertions and HashCode?
For example: Is it possible to read about Declaration and Access control in a 310-025 book and still pass that part in the 310-035?
TIA
Johnny

Welcome to the JavaRanch Johnny!
The 1.4 exam removes the AWT and IO topics but adds assertions and a couple new classes in the collections framework--LinkedHashMap and LinkedHashSet. The wrapper classes and hashcodes are further emphasized in 1.4.
Everything that you need to know about assertions is available in the document Programming with Assertions.
A lot of people passed the 1.4 exam before an updated study guide became available, so I'm sure that you can do the same
