Hi,

i am planning to give scjp1.5 exam. I have the book for Sun Certified Java Programmer 1.4 by Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates. Is there any way that I can get the new topics covered in scjp1.5 without having to purchase the newer version(for 1.5)???I mean is there any book specifically for ppl who give the upgrade exam 5.0 (CX-310-056)?Please help me.

TIA,
pavani.

pavani!
If you are preparing for 1.5, i would suggest you buy the second book too. Whether you appear for the exam or not, the book is worth a read. And if you are too specific to the difference of scjp1.4 and 5, better you can first compare the objectives of the two exams than looking for materials for the upgrade exam. Good luck.

The second book is well worth the money. There were topics discussed in the 1.4 book which are no longer on the 1.5 exam (specifically, information on the Math class).

It's best to simply buy the new book and study it.

Anyone take upgrade , follow the sun objectives for 310-056, otherwise you waste time and money in rereading everything and concentrating onw rong areas.
