Good luck
Great summary! This is just the information I was looking for.
I have to make a shameless plug, but I reckon I'm allowed : )
I have a book on the 1.4 Programmer's Exam coming out at the end of this year (so, in December). I helped create the new exam, so I have a pretty good idea of the level of difficulty and the nature of what you need to know. My practice tests are very close to the way the real exam is now.
If you need to take the test immediately, then I would recommend the Passport book if you're taking 1.2, or the Sybex RHE book if you're going to take the 1.4 exam. After that, if you're taking the 1.4 exam, I'll quote Max Habibi from the Developer's forum and say, "you should go to your local bookstore and see if it meets your style."
You have to appreciate humour or you won't like it. Remember, I'm the one who wrote most of the original campfire stories ("Cup Size", "How my Dog Learned Polymorphism", "Getting in Touch with Your Inner Class", etc.) so if those don't appeal to you, this book won't either
p.s. I'll try to start helping out here with programmer exam questions whenever I can.
...and I just got two (2) copies of Java Rules!

Do you mind mentionning where to find your practice tests ?
Howdy -- the practice tests are actually in the book, but I'm going to post a lot of them very soon. I'll definitely let you know where and when.
That feels good. Thanks. Here's a tiny ad:
