Welcome to CodeRanch!

If you search this forum, there have been a lot of answers to this. The gist of this is that nobody can decide for you.

OCP 6 - only need to take one exam, can take the upgrade exam to 7 if want after
OCAJP 7 - a much easier test, need to take OCPJP 7 to get to OCP 6 equivalent level
