If you prepared for SCJP 1.4 Do SCJP 1.4

You would find SCJP 1.5 Confusing.

On the other hand, you can prepare for 1.5 and cover the new topics missing in 1.4.

I'd recommend you to stick with SCJP 1.4 as you have already prepared for it. You should find it easy to just recive it once and give the exam. As the above post says, you might get confused if you start with 1.5, provided you spend some time studying for it firsthand.
