Welcome to the Ranch

Which version to take depends on your experience really. If you are new to Java, go for v7 (OCA+OCP). If you have some experience then go for v6.

Things to note:
v7 has 2 exams where v6 has 1 to get the same level (SCJP)
v7 OCA is a subset of v6 exam plus v7 new features
v7 exams covers a broader range of topics than the v6
v7 exams (maybe just OCP) tend to be harder than v6 exam

What's the difference between take:
- OCA 7 (803) + OCP 7 (804) or
- OCP 6 (851) + OCP 7 (805) ?

Both path are legit right?

1Z0 803 and 1Z0 804 are the exams specially for the new candidates who all are enter into java platform.
1Z0 805 for already certified professionals who all are already finish SCJP lower version like SCJP 4 or 5 or 6, they can simply take this one exam to update their knowledge to latest version.

Here is OCPJP 7 Exam preparation tips and OCPJP 7 Upgrade exam preparation tips

I understand this, but if i go on THIS PAGE i read:

STEP 1 - PRIOR CERTIFICATION
Any version Oracle Certified Professional, Java Programmer OR Any version Sun Certified Java Programmer



Maybe I'm wrong, but I think that someone could take the 851 (Oracle Certified Professional Java Programmer 6) and then the 805, he can do it because at this time he already have a previous OCPJP (it's not necessary a SCJP right?); in this way he can obtain 2 programmer level certification with only 2 exam.
Am I wrong? Where?

Edit: looking here: it seems right to me.
