Hi, I have passed SCJP 5.0 with 87%. I referred 2 books - K & B and SCJP Exam for J2SE 5 by Paul Sanghera. I read both the books twice (which I finished in 2 months). I took the tests at the end of the books & scored 86 & 91%. I didn't took any commercial exam simulators but I gave many online free mock exams which boosted by confidence.

The exam duration was 235 mins and I had to answer 82 questions out of which 10 questions were extra unscored questions. Phew! that was exhausting.

Now towards conquering the SCWCD title.

http://www.sun.com/training/certification/java/index.xml has the complete details about all the java certifications. SCJA & SCJP (Java) are the entry level certs. The higher level certs like SCWCD (JSP/Servlets), SCBCD(EJB's) SCDJWS(Web Services) requires you to be SCJP cerified first. So start off with SCJP. The book by Katherine Sierra & Bert Bates is a good one to start.
