HI Guys,
Just came back from the testing center. I missed out on one question in the threads section. The overall exam was easy.
I started studying for Java just a month back. I have no prior Java exeprience. I studied from Java Programming language by Arnold Gosling and Holmes. Referred to the JLS time to time. I used to hang out at the forum quite frequently and all the questions posed by the ranchers and their answers really did help me a lot.
I would also like to thank Dan Chisholm for his excellent site. I would recommend solving all his exams to get a good grasp of the fundamentals. The SCJP is not as tough so if you get a good score on Dans tests you can rest assured that you will score real big.
Marcus Greens exams are also very close to the level of the real eam
I used K&B's book for the Collection interfaces and wrapper classes. (read those two chapters when I was looking for your book in Borders ).
Next step SCWCD.

I took the 1.4 exam. This exam does not cover I/O or AWT or event handlging.
For collections Kathy and Berts books is more than enough.
Threads can get tricky at times.
I would suggest Solve all the tests there.
