If you are preparing for SCJP, I suggest you take 1.5 since either way you will later think of upgrading it. If you take 1.4 like many others, later they eventually took the upgrade to 1.5. They end up purchasing two vouchers. Whereas, you can use the other voucher to good use by taking up SCBCD, SCWCD or SCEA part 1. Saves you more money and puts you ahead. The thing you have to worry about though is more studying since new features were added. This is what I thought about when I decided to take 1.5. Be smart, save more.

Uhmmmm... Darn... I should have known this earlier! What do you think are the chances(percentage) if I didn't buy any study guide book and just took the exam? I'm out of budget, but if I knew this earlier I would've taken it anyway...

If you didn't buy the K&B Book, you should have atleast and idea of your chances by taking the free mock exams available. This will measure your chances of passing the exam.
I was also out of budget before when I ordered the K&B Book (310-055), but i realized if a lot of people come into the exam unprepared and receive failing marks even those with years of experience then i need to prepare well, so I borrowed money and bought the book. After the exam, you will find the book is still useful as a reference based from other professionals.
