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.
