I would like to know the release date of the K&B book, too. I can't wait to start cramming.

I attended Mughal's presentation "Cracking the New Sun Certified Programmer for Java 2 Platform 1.5 Exam" at the JavaZone conference in Oslo a month ago. He is working on a new 5.0 version of the book, but he had no date. "Sometime early 2006" was about as precise as he could get.

Some of you might be interested in the slides from the presentation...

I just asked mr Mughal the very same question by email. His reply was that it probably would not be ready until the second half of 2006. Before that, they will publish some material on the web site that should be enough to pass the 1.5 exam.
