Firstly, please SearchFirst, and go through SCJP-FAQ.

Secondly, by this exam, what do you exactly mean? The reason behind this question is - there are two ways to achieve OCPJP 7:
1) OCAJP 7 + OCPJP 7
2) OCPJP 6 + OCPJP 7(upgrade exam)

If you follow second approach, Sierra-Bates book is enough for OCPJP 6.

I hope this helps.

All the best!

In that case, OCAJP FAQ might be helpful.

@Anayonkar

Which path is cheaper

1) OCAJP 7 + OCPJP 7
2) OCPJP 6 + OCPJP 7(upgrade exam)


Also what is the exam code for that upgrade exam to OCPJP 7 ?

Thanks

The upgrade exam is for them who already have older certification. So, in my opinion, you should go for OCAJP + OCPJP 7.

Also, there is no dedicated book available that treats only OCPJP 7 upgrade exam preparation (apart from this one; however, I am not sure about the depth in which the upgrade exam topics are covered).

The exam code for upgrade exam is 1Z0-805.
