Self-study will be always better than coaching.

Institute or Self study ? this answer can be better answered by you. consolidate your strengths and weaknesses and then decide will you be able to go through the exam using self-study. most of the people i have encountered have opted for self study and they have successfully completed the exam. according to me the only advantage of institute is that you get like-minded people with whom you can collaborate and study together which gives sense of preparation. coming to your next point yes scjp certification guide by kathy seirra is one of the best book out there for the programmer exam(scjp/ocpjp). what i would suggest is start reading it and not just reading it start experimenting on it, code as much as you can. be active member of javaranch, you will get all the more tips than any institute believe me.
