Can somebody please guide me??? I came to know about SCJP 1.5 a bit late...and I understand that the exam covers considerably extra topics and the exam's a bit tough. In addition, passing percentage is high and study material is a bit on the lesser side.

I have covered all the 9 topics from K & B book for SCJP 1.4.....but I wish to study for 1.5 and I will be referring K & B book only for the purpose....

1. Can somebody tell me as to what to study from the 1.5 book so that i cover the extra topics while not studying the topics which I have already covered? like which chapters I can blindly skip....
2. I intend to take the exam somewhere in the 1st week of August. I have never worked on Java 5. Any suggestions/comments on whether should I take 1.5 are welcome.
I agree. Here's the link:
