Hi.. I have got a confusion about the SCJP exam (310-065)

On Sun's website it is written that passing percentage is 58.33%(35 out of 60) for this exam..
Link is

whereas in K&B in Introduction page no xxxi it is written that passing percentage is 65%(47 out of 72)

Which one is correct.. Those who have cleared this exam please answer...

The passing marks changed recently so the change is not reflected in the K&B book. The passing score is 58.33%, you can confirm the objectives and passing score here...
