Confusion regarding JLS for J2SE6

Hello, world
I am planning to appear for OCJP 6 certification exam.
Have already bought the Bates/Sierra Study guide and Practice Exams.
Just wanted to know which Java Language Specification to consult for it ?
From what I understand JLS 3rd edition covering SE 5 would be sufficient as there are no differences between J2SE5 and J2SE6 as far as the exam is concerned.
Can anyone confirm this please ??? Or will JLS for SE7 be a better choice ???
Cheers

p.s.: my apologies if a similar question was already posted.

You are going to give exam for OCJP 6. So why not download and read the one for Java 6?

Check and download here - http://docs.oracle.com/javase/specs/

Note that JLS is bit difficult to read and understand (at least for me)

Yeah but the 3rd edition was released for j2se5 and then the next edition [4th] was for j2se7
There is no specific edition for se6.
But thanks anyway for your input.

Java 6 conforms to the third edition of the Java Language Specification -- which, is the same specification that Java 5 conforms to.

Just adding to Henry's point, I can see JLS 3 caters to both Java 5 / Java 6 in the link I previously posted.
