Welcome to JavaRanch,..

start reading that book and then perhaps K&B book. Your goal should be possible to accomplish. It took me about 2 months to prepare, and by time I started I didn't know much about Java. There are also guys who prepared just for week and passed (barely, but passed).

Read the FAQ, read the book, watch the forum, try some mocks,..

Good luck.

Kathy Sierra & Bert bates (K & B) book for SCJP exam. This is a very good book for SCJP. I was also new to JAVA when I started. I did not read Head First java but I suggest you to read. Then start K & B.
I took 6 months for prearations.
