You MUST go for SCJP 6. The differences between SCJP 5 and 6 can be found here. There's isn't much difference between the two exams. With K&B book you need to practice as much as you can. Create programs using the API given in the book and experiment with the stuff. Also give as many mock exams as you can. The list of SCJP mock exams can be found here...

If you are completely new to Java, you can start with Head First Java book. Then you can go for the SCJP Study Guide from Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates to study specifically for SCJP...
