You have already started a thread on this subject. Why start another?
I am going to close your other thread to avoid people wasting their time responding in a thread you will probably not look at again.

For me, it is clear from the Sun web site that you will get a smaller selection of questions from the normal SCJP 5.0 examination. All irrelevant questions (e.g. Math class, shift operators) from SCJP 1.4 have already been removed from SCJP 5.0. Those questions on topics from SCJP 1.4 that remain in SCJP 5.0 have been mostly rewritten to enhance the understanding aspect rather than the rote memory aspect common to the earlier examinations. So no shortcuts.
I agree. Here's the link:
