I would suggest getting a good SCJP prep book. You can find a lot of reviews in the Bunkhouse.
Although I used Mughal and Rasmussen, a lot of people really like the recent on by Bates and Sierra, who, of course, are regulars here at the Ranch so you can go right to the authors with questions.
Continue hanging out at the Ranch and ask/answer questions and take some mock exams - in my opinion, those are the best ways to prep for the exam.
