I havn't take the exam yet, but I will be taking it very soon. The best way to prepare for the exam is to get a good book. "Java 2 by Kathy Sierra @ Bert Bates" is a very good one. If you are new to Java, you can use "Core Java 2" to get more explenations about various Java concepts. When you think you are ready, try to take few mock exams. Some of them are offered free of charge, or you can buy commercial ones. I am using Whizlabs SCJP 1.4 simulator. It is very good.
Hope that help.
Good luck
P.S. Keep up with this site, you will learn alot during your prepration for SCJP
