Although there is significant overlap with the JDK 1.4 exam I guess that there is at least 30% new material to learn. Some of the new topics are

regular expressions
the Locale class
the Text class
serializing streams
generic collections
generic method parameters
input/output classes
for-each looping
locales (dates and currencies)
OO concepts (coupling and cohesion)
jar files
sorting and searching collections
covariant returns
JavaBean naming

This is also addressed in our SCJP FAQ.
