It rather gives a general idea of JAVA (architecture/using), not necessary for SCJA exam.
Though, I've just finishing to read it for the second time (as a preperation for SCJA)
After that I'll start work with Scja Sun Certified Java Associate Study Guide.

About 3-4 months (as an additional study (1-2 hours a day + one project)).
Right now I'm going to start the last stage, which will be SCJA Sun Certified Java Associate Study Guide book + whizlab mock tests.
How about you?

There is some free questions in demo, but full version costs $50 (link: http://www.whizlabs.com/scja/scja.html).

Visit SCJA Faq section here (at JavaRanch) for mock exam links and other info
