Please excuse me for my ignorance. What is the SCJA exam, and is it more suitable for students and project managers rather than actual Java programmers/developers?

I already have a SCJP 1.4 and is now working on a SCJD. Should I also attempt with the SCJA?

Lastly, is there any good books or study aids on SCJA?

What is the SCJA exam

An exam for Java beginners or managers who want to have an overall knowledge on Java, including J2SE, J2EE and J2ME, together with the OOAD concepts.

Yes because it is actually test you on a board knowledge on various Java technology, and the detail of the technologies are not tested.

It depends on where you wanna to have it, a personal decision.

is there any good books or study aids on SCJA?

No, as the exam is very new actually.
