Hi All,

recently I took and passed SCJP 1.4 exam. I got a lot of experience with Java 1.4 and little with Tiger.
I'm starting to prepare to SCJP 1.5 (yeps, it's addictive... ;-) ) and I wonder if you could suggest me a book(s) which extensively describes Java 1.5 and differences between 1.4 and 1.5.

Best regards,
Radek Sztando

A couple of books that you can consider are:

1) Java 5.0 Tiger: A Developer's Notebook, by Brett McLaughlin and David Flanagan

2) Learning Java, by Patrick Niemeyer and Jonathon Knudsen

Book #1 provides an overview of Java 5's new features.
Book #2 has 900 pages of discussion on Java and its latest features.
