I just passed the exam there with very little to spare.
I used the Whizlabs mock exams to prepare for the exam.

I found the mock exams good, but the language in the questions can be a bit misleading at times, but they are close to the exam standard, maybe a little bit harder but not much.

In the mock exams I got the following out of 72.
28 33 49 38 45
So in my opinion you don't need to be getting over (50/72) before you are ready to sit the exam, if all you want to do is pass it.

I used the book
SCJP Exam for J2SE 5: A Concise and Comprehensive Study Guide for The Sun Certified Java Programmer Exam (Paul Sanghera)
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1590596978/sr=8-4/qid=1145900180/ref=pd_bbs_4/103-1043579-8965412?%5Fencoding=UTF8

In my view this book is OK, but it leaves some stuff out that there is no need to. If you are going to read a book with 370 pages its no big deal to read 20 or 30 more.
