Hi Ojima,

Refer to this site's SCJP FAQ for lots of tips for preparing for the exam. If you already have a fair bit of Java experience, three months should be sufficient (but don't forget to book your exam in advance, to avoid scheduling problems).

You'll probably also want to get your hands on a copy of "SCJP: Sun Certified Programmer for Java 5 Study Guide" by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates (a.k.a. "K&B"). That's the study guide most of us here use, and you'll see many references to it on this forum.
