Yes K&B book is enough for SCJP 5.0 exam.To get the maximun what you need to do is do some practical stuffs also.Read them from K&B and implement them on you box.

hi Sanjeev
Thanks for your suggestion but Seems to be you havent exactly got my point.K&T book is enough but i have that book for 1.4 certification and now as if in 5.0 there are many topics added and the 5.0 K&T book is updated is what i heard.so will this 1.4 book help me to take 5.0 exam.I am skeptic about the topics which are same for 1.4 and 5, are they both same in both versions of books or anything much updated?Can you please Suggest me more regarding this

Hi, The objective of scjp 1.4 is different from scjp1.5. The K&B book for scjp1.4 does not cover the topics in scjp1.5 objectives, otherwise it is the same. So if you are going to prepare for scjp1.5 it is better you get K&B book for java5. also the Self test question differs in both the book. java5 test more on performance of the code than the language syntax. So it will be better if you get SCJP1.5 book of K&B or have to take extra effort to learn the new features of java5 from some other source.
