Mainly this is a question for Kathy or Bert. lists a new K&B book Sun Certified Programmer & Developer for Java Study Guide (Exams 310-XXX & 310-XXX) (Certification Press) which is scheduled for release in August 2005. The cover currently looks like this:

(Moderators, if hot-linking an Amazon image is forbidden, please forgive me and edit/delete my post.)

I just wanted to confirm that this book is for the new exam Sun Certified Programmer for the Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition 5.0 (CX-310-055). Is it?

Thanks in advance.

SCJA 1.0 (98%), SCJP 1.4 (98%)
