If you are going to start your preparation then take 1.5.

Also please check the naming policy in ranch. You should have a valid first & last name

Yes since you going to start you preparation it's better to go for SCJP 1.5, books from K&B is always good , it is yet to be released , not sure about the release date. Also when preparing for 1.5 you have to keep in mind that there are less mocks exams available.

Since SCJP 1.5 is the latest one , i prefer to go for it. There are even other criterias you should consider, like the platform or version in which you are working now, etc etc . You can refer to the other thread by Bert Bates regarding the scheduled release of 1.5 books. The time of preparation varies from person to person.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
