i am currently reading from java complete reference 5 .I also did purchased SCJP6 book to start reading after i complete reading this book

Now i am Scared because of the version after completing reading complete reference 5 will i be able to understand SCJP6 as it deals with 6 th version of java??

Will i be able to prepare myself for SCJP6 exams??

Yes. There will be some things added in Java 6, and some changes, but most of what you learn regarding Java 5 is very much valid in Java 6.

The ScjpFaq says that the differences between those versions are minimal: http://faq.javaranch.com/java/ScjpFaq#16diff15

The SCJP book will address new topics relevant to the exam. I'm assuming you're talking about Sierra and Bates' book - it's open on my lap right now; it's an excellent book and it is very specific about what will and won't be on the exam.

For more information, you should also view this thread.

The Java API is available on Sun's website as well. But, the fact of the matter is, when you're FIRST learning the language, the differences between 5 and 6 are not important, IMO. As you progress, you will start to see where the differences are important, but I think learning the basics from a Java 5 book is fine.

Plus, if you were to google "differences between Java 5 and Java 6" I'm sure you would find tons of sites explaining the differences.
