If you have no experience in Java, I wouldn't start learning Java by trying to become a certified programmer. Rather, I'd pick up some "Intro" books, such as Head First java, and become acclaimated to Java. Then, if you like it and want to delve into the intricacies of Java, you might want to look into certification.
It has been my experience that studying for the certification is not a good way to learn to program in Java.
The book I mentioned earlier is just one of many texts out there, but I think it is an excellent guide for someone that wants to learn Java. You can find more books and reviews in our Bunkhouse Section.
