Differences between scjp 1.5 and 1.6

Hello.

Almost a year ago I started to study for the scjp 1.5. At that time, the scjp 1.6 hadn�t been released. So now I would like to know what the differences between those two exams are. Because, as I understand it, there are no major differences in the java language between jdk 1.5 and jdk 1.6

So, can I take the scjp 1.6 with the knowledge I have for the scjp 1.5?

Before posting questions, it would be better if you could search the forum for your question.
This question has been answered 1000 times.
If you scroll one or two pages of the SCJP forum, you can find the answer.
Thanks.

I think this must be put into the FAQ now...

Paul, your are right. But before I posted the question I looked for similar questions posted before, buy I did not find any questions similar to mine, at least, in the first and second pages of the latest posted questions. That is why I decided to post the question.

Later, I looked for my answer in the FAQ section, and I found it there.

So, the advice would be to look into the FAQ section before posting questions.

Hey Paul,

Let's remember to be nice!!!

We want JavaRanch to always be a place where there are no dumb questions AND, by the way, no dumb answers!

I think that Eugenio's question was perfectly okay! So for instance, I think that in response to Eugenio's question, the correct response would be something like this:

"Hey Eugenio, Welcome to the ranch! It turns out that this question has come up before so we've already posted an answer to it here _____ If, after reading that link, you still have a question please feel free to ask again."

My opinion is that one of the best ways to learn a topic is to attempt to answer a question about that topic - as is common on these forums. In order for people to feel comfortable answering a question they must first feel comfortable asking a question. In fact, Kathy started JavaRanch in the first place because she wanted there to be a place where people could feel comfortable asking and answering questions.

So let's stick to Javaranch's main theme...

Be Nice!


Thanks,

Bert

That's why I am a big fan of Kathy and Bert !
Hi Bert !
I think your style of writing is very refreshing and friendly.
I've read your SCJP and currently enjoying Head First Design Patterns.
Thanks for writing and contributing to the nice books !
I wish children's text books were written like that.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
