Actually if you can just grab the basics of Java, it would be sufficient for continuing with SCJP preparations. The former may take around a month's time and the later can do in 2 to 3 months. But it purely depends on your interest, the continuous and sincere efforts you put.
You can just read through Head First Java for the basics of Java and OO (Object Oriented) principles and A Programmer's Guide to Java Certification by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates.
Thus, everything depends on its experiencia with logic if you have a good logic you do not go to have much difficulty in learning, the OO concepts, and to have knowledge with programming also is essential. I myself programmed in PHP, and since feveiro of 2006 I moved for JAVA, was a strange change, I had that to really start of the zero. I come studying for SCJP accurately the 1, come�ei in agosto/2006 and tried the examination in abril/2007 however not to obtain to pass, I took off 54% of 59%. E I come again studying to try in the next months. I only used the book of kathy and whizlabs. e participating of f�rum, that it is essential also.
