Monika, you come to the right place
I am also preparing for the exam,
this forum is full of questions, tips, exam links, people who can help you....etc
depending on your jave experience so far, how you prepare for the exam may be different, if you have just started with java, then I suggest that you first read and make your self comfortable with the Java Language Specification JLS, available on the www.java.sun.com web site.
then I suggest that you buy the Java Exam Cram book, it is excellent resource to help you pass the exam, but don't depend on the book to learn java, this book is full of tips and exam tricks as well as the main concepts and also hundreds of questions.
try also and keep in touch with this forum daily, people keep on asking interesting questions in this place, try to answer some of it, or read the answers of others.
there are lots and lots of online mock exams and resources on the web, I suggest that you start from the Marcus Green website
at www.jchq.net , and make your way through the rest of the links, you will find a page filled with links to other web sites.
it is getting hard to give a list of every website dedicated for the SCJP, since these are growing in number, and the quality of some are getting bad as well.
but the Marcus Green web page should set you on the right track
take the tutorials, and the mock exams.
and study hard
and good luck.

monika,
If you havent read a book on java programming yet. do that before you read the JLS. Do read the JLS though and take as many mock exams as you can find. There is a good list of mock exams on maha annas page(http://www.javaranch.com/maha/index.html). take notes on the things you miss on the mock exams. Reread the book you have on java programming then take more mock tests. Expect to spend 2 months study if you know java already. I would save the marcus green exams for last since they seem the closest to the real exam and you can get a feeling for how you will do. Good luck I take the test tomorrow myself ;^)
