Hello All,
I am planning to appear for SCJP in next 2 months.
I have read Khalid Mughal 1.4 version earlier, and had done quick revision now.
Any one tell me in case to appear SCJP 6.0, which exact material i need to study other than 1.4. I do have K & B book copy but have feeling to refer only one book at a time.

have a nice day

Advice: do not depend on only one book, nor on test questions, nor on practical experience alone; try to combine all available sources.
For the exam-specific side, "SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 5 Study Guide (Exam 310-055)" (Bates/Sierra) is imho the best choice. If your practical Java development experience is limited, you might find "Agile Java(TM): Crafting Code with Test-Driven Development" (Langr) a good companion.
New subjects in 1.5 you can find in the exam objectives, especially section 6 about Collections and Generics (non-trivial stuff!).

What is the K&B Book ??

Well, read from the SCJP study guide and keep practicing with lots of programs and mock exams. Once you are confident you can go ahead and take the exam.
