I plan to take the SCJP 1.5 exam. I all ready own a copy of Bates' SCJP 1.4 book. Should I spend more money and buy the 1.5 version?

you cannot give SCJP 1.5 without 1.5 book. It has changed drastically.

Uh, sure you can. I would recommend getting the K&B 1.5 book, sure. But it is certainly possible to take the exam and do well on it without that book, or any book for that matter. It's just harder.

cmon Jim it's an unwritten rule i guess, you should read kathy and Berts book to do well. people ofcourse can do well by reading JSR's but someone who has SCJP 1.4 book and wants to give 1.5 exam based on that would never succeed and i guess that's what he asked.

I agree with abhishek. Moreover if you want to take SCJP 5.0 seriously it's worth buying a book for that. K&B is of Rs 400 only (In India).

400 rupees?!! Isn't that like 10$ us/cdn? What a bargain.
