I am busy preparing for the java 5 scjp exam and I am know confused if I should wait and go for the new java 6 exam. Whats the purpose fo taking the upgrade exam if you already certified?. Do you get a all new certificate stating ver 6 or does it state that you have passed the upgrade exam.
Thanks in advance guys!

That's true. Only Console, NavigableSet and NavigableMap were added, plus more focus on garbage collection and finalize() method. I really don't see any reason for you to take SCJP 5 instead of SCJP 6. On my self, I prepared for the SCJP 5 from Bert's book, then I read in the java API doc about the three new classes and then I took my SCJP 6 exam. I got it with 83%. In the exam I got only 1 question about the class Console and absolutely no questions about NavigableSet and NavigableMap. I got a couple of questions though about garbage collection and finalize(). Good luck with it!!
