Firstly, I think you can tell whether a book is for SCJP2 or SCJP4, by the publishing date and introduction.
I don't have idea which book is the best for scjp. I think it all depends on individual. But I can recall coming across many posts talking about Kathy Sierra's book. It looks like to me it is quite popular.
As a matter of fact, I think you will probablly get more information if posting in SCJP forum.
Good luck with your study and exam!
