I recommend you to go for SCJP 6.0 (CX 310-065) exam. You need to be certified as a programmer (SCJP), before you can go for any developer exam.

You can take the exam at any prometric test center. You can search for a test center in your country.

For all of the other questions, please have a look at our SCJP FAQ.

Well, SCJA is the entry level exam, so I'd recommend that, but then again, I'm a bit biased.

Check out my signature links for some sample SCJA mock exams to give you a flavour for what the exam questions might be like.
