How much time to prepare depends on individual, how much time you put in per day, etc. As for books, I used the complete Java2 certification guide and Java2 exam Cram. To get your feet wet with java though, I suggest Ivor Horton's Beginning Java 2. Thinking in Java by Bruce Eckel will also help you a great deal both for the exam and as you progress in your career.
You can post your questions to the programmer certification forum here to get more responses.

JavaRanch has a BunkHouse full of recommendations for books.
For a beginner book I like Just Java 2 by Peter van der Linden.
For certifications books I am sort of biased . . .
