SCJP is the basic level, the exam costs $150. Kathy Sieras' SCJP Examination guide is good, you have to do a lot of mock exams. Well there are many exams which you can sit for after doing the SCJP, it is upto you to decide what you are going to be, Hope this helps.

SCJP 1.4, SCMAD 1.0<br />SCWCD, SCBCD (in progress)
