Oracle's book and Manning's book spring to mind.

I agree with Mala Gupta's book. It also has a mock exam on the book. Aside from looking for study guides, you might want to look for mock exams as well. I'm looking into enthuware mock exams for this one.

Like others, I'd recommend two books:

- "OCA Java SE 7 Programmer I Certification Guide" by Mala Gupta.
- "OCAJP Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 7 Programmer Practice Exams" by Hanumant Deshmukh.

You can read summary here.

Thank you Jeanne, Roel, Yin and Nam Ha Minh for your inputs. I decided to go with Mala Gupta's and Hanumant Deshmukh's book(I am not able to find this book online).

You're welcome, Anup. I believe Deshmukh's book is more of a mock exam than a study guide. Alternatively, you may opt to buy Enthuware's mock exam instead of Deshmukh's book to have a feel on taking an exam on computer rather than on ebook/book. AFAIK, the contents of those two are the same. Thanks! Good luck to everyone of us!
I agree. Here's the link:
