At the bottom of the page is a search box, you'll get more posts than you imagine if you type 'Programmer Certification Study book' into it an press enter.
You can also try out the certification books section of the bunkhouse.

In my opinion, go for the ultimate experience
A Programmer's Guide to Java Certification by Khalid Azim Mughal, Rolf Rasmussen.
possibly the best book around for SCJP.

I agree that Mughal and Rasmussen is very good. You should check out the JavaRanch certification book reviews, as well.

SCJP Tipline, etc.

In my opinion A Programmer's Guide to Java Certification by Khalid Azim Mughal, Rolf Rasmussen is an utimate one, this deals topics in depth. also actively looking at this site,there is nothing like that.
Good Luck
