Hi Gurjeet, welcome to javaranch.

If you don't have basic understanding of java, then you must start with Head First Java book. After that you can read SCJP Study Guide by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates (K&B). Go through the ScjpFaq to get more knowledge about SCJP...

Hi,

Welcome to Javaranch.

As Ankit adviced, check out for the ScjpFaq and follow this pattern

1- Read HFJ
2- Purchase K&B book
3- Revise it twice
4- Practice self-test questions. Pay complete attention
5- Give lots of Mock Exams. Master Exam -> Enthuware -> ExamLab -> Inquisition
6- Be a hard core rancher.

Happy Preparation,
