Be aware that the objectives for the recertification exam cover old, key features and general knowledge, and some, but not all of the new features.

Photoshop Glossary updated to CS4
An eBook containing explanations of over 465 commonly used Photoshop terms, phrases and acronyms. All explained succinctly and clearly without recourse to technical jargon.

The terms, phrases and acronyms cover nearly every imaginable area of Photoshop: from the interface to panels, tools, color management, layers, modes, editing, dialog boxes, filters, output, Bridge, Camera Raw, and much more.

While all of the explanations apply to Photoshop CS4, the majority also apply to the previous versions because of the shared features between versions.

To make navigation easier, extensive text anchors are provided. The text anchors can be used in conjunction with navigation commands in Acrobat Reader and Preview for even easier navigation.

"Gave the Photoshop Glossary a quick look and feel it will be really helpful. Sometimes finding a comprehensive definition in other sources (and I have quite a few) is like panning for gold."
