I think that You should first do few mock tests to measure your knowledge.
If your score will be good enough You can take SCJP Exam

You need more than a month and you must spend time taking mock exams. Once you score consistently well you can have a crack at it

Hi guys:

The first mock exams I took (Whizlabs), I was not passing the exams. I was getting 38/72, 40/72, 41/72. I did learn a lot from doing them. But I did not want to take the exams with Whilabs just because if I do good I am afraid of memorizing the questions. So, it wouldn't give me a good measure to determine if I am ready for the test. I started doing the exams at ePractiveLabs and I am passing them with at least a 70%. My question is, should I feel ready? Are the Whizlabs exam harder than the ePracticeLabs exam? Is the real exam more like Whizlabs or more like ePracticeLabs? I am just worried that it would be more like Whizlabs and those were the ones I did worse on... Please advise. Regardless, I will keep studying until I get better scores on both, but was wondering if anyone had any input on this. Thanks.

I agree. Here's the link:
