You need to do four things:
1. Install jdk1.4 and practice as many programs as u can.
2. Read Khalid mugal and K&B
3. Practice mock exams.
4. PRAY that u get good marks :0)

Hi Megha, to add to Jughead things...
Very first thing, read all the SCJP FAQ's given here before starting. Here is a link to thatFAQ's
Follow the ranch regularly.

Mr.Megha
I am also preparing for SCJP and I support the suggestion by my fellow ranchers and add few more things..
1.Go through Java Tutorials from SUN .Keep the Khalid book or any book and when u turn a page , follow the Tutorial also with the same topic.
2.Refer Language specification also for any specied rule.This is also having sample programs to check the specification.
3.Make frequent revisions.
4.Whether u make or not do mock tests daily.
5.To my idea it should take 240 Manhours.(1 man 30 days * 8 hrs/day)to get a complete idea of concepts.
6.The very important point is that u make ur self confident and fit for the exam psychologically.
7.My philosophy is "Nothing is impossible" , but only "Difficult".
8.I hope you will come out of the difficulty.
9.Take it as it comes.
10.Sincerity and hardwork is never wasted.U get return in some or the other way.
All the best
