I am planning to give OCJP java SE 6 (1Z0-851).. I have started preparing from "SCJP 1.6(310-065) Kathy Siera & Bert Bates".. Is there any change in the format of current OCJP java SE 6 (1Z0-851).. Is reading from "SCJP 1.6(310-065) Kathy Siera & Bert Bates" enough or I have to refer to some other resource also.
Thanks.

Welcome to the Ranch.

K&B study guide should be enough. Also practice writing lots of code. Do exercises or test your understanding by coding.

I find the objectives in the Oracle website slightly different from the objectives in the SCJP 1.6(310-065) Kathy Siera & Bert Bates book. Have the objectives been updated recently for SCJP 6? Please Clarify.

Thanks.

To my understanding the objectives are pretty much the same. Maybe the wording is changed.

I think you are referring to SCJP 6 and OCPJP 7. If yes, indeed there is a big difference. I think, OCPJP 7 not only covers Java 7 features but also difficult to crack.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
