Could someone tell the difference between SCJP and OCJP ?

1) Are they essentially the same exam with two aliases (since Oracle owned Sun) ?
2) If they are different, what should I opt to take scjp or ocjp ?
3) Again, in case they are different, how much different is the portion of ocjp from the portion of scjp ?

I was suggested the SCJP Preparation book by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates . Is the same book sufficient for ocjp too ?

Yes they are same exams. SCJP name is no longer used.
