If you are prepared for java 5, then in three months you can very easily prepare for the new features in java 6.
Also don't base your decision to take SCJP5 on the version of java your project is using currently. Its always good to take latest certification, rather than taking an old one and then later going for an upgrade exam.

But, I am comfortable with Java 5 since I am prepared whereas I am totally not aware of whats new in Java 6.
Moreover, My project uses only Java 5. Hence I want to stick with it.
Since technology is always changing, stay with the LATEST is the BEST decision...If your company decided to upgrade Java 6 or the Latest, isn't it's good that you have Java 6 certified ?
I started with Java 2 and worked with Java 4 & 6, and got certified with Java 6. Do you think I should get certified in Java 4 ?? Absolutely not, the LATEST always the BEST choice to KEEP UP with the technology.

I can only agree with most other posts here, there's simply no reason not to go for 1.6 instead.
Especially since I understand the main difference is only Navigable collections and the Console class. Maybe this is not 100% correct, but thats' what I was told by my professor and trust me when I tell you, these 2 things are a piece of cake to learn in comparison with everything else you need to learn anyway.

Thank you very much for the information. I have decided to take up JAVA SE 6 certification.
Anybody who is ready to sell the JAVA SE 6 voucher, please let me know. I would be interested to take it up.
