Java 1.5 Certification resources (310-055)

Passed the SCJP 5.0 exam! I took the exam on Saturday 30th July but did not get the scores after the exam due to some technical problems. They gave me a phone number to find about the scores but I had to wait till Monday since it was a weekend. I called them on Monday and after staying on hold for about 30 mins, I was told that I passed the exam... It was a relief.. Still did not get the scores though.. They said they will send me the score report in mail..

Regarding exam preparation, I found the SCJP Tiger Study Guide very very helpful.. Also the Sun's tutorial on Generics from the notes page is a must read.
