I compared objectives of SCJP 5 & SCJP 6 - I did not find a single difference.
I have SCJP 5 Head first; can I use SCJP 5 Head first for SCJP 6.

the difference between the two is the following topics are added to version 6:

1. Console
2. NavigableSet & NavigableMap

I don't really know whether they put them in the objectives, but the first one is often asked about in some mock exams.
Hope this helps.

You will find also many useful information in FAQ. Here you will find the differences between those exams.

Is there Head First SCJP? I didn`t know that. Or maybe you mean K&B book?

Thanks to both of you for replies.

... since you already have Head First Java book, study it completely before starting on with an SCJP book.
I agree. Here's the link:
