Java 2 by Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates. I used it, and I like it very much.

Absolutely! That's the only study guide you'll need.
You may want to consider a few Java tutorial books for more in-depth practice at Java programming. I won't mention any because I don't know your level of Java or programming proficiency.
Best wishes for success in your exam!

Cheers, Jeff (SCJP 1.4, SCJD in progress, if you can call that progress...)
