Gabriel Beres,

You need to complete Oracle Certified Associate, Java SE 7 Programmer certification (OCAJ 7) before taking OCPJP 7. If you already hold any version of Oracle Certified Professional, Java Programmer OR Any version of Sun Certified Java Programmer you can attend OCPJP 7 under upgrade path.

Oracle currently have BETA exam of upgrade path only and other BETA exams will be available soon.

Thanks for the info. I didn't realize that the exam is already existing.
It looks like there are currently no official book for preparation.

Hi Moka, you can take a look at the book by Ganesh/Sharma; this book could be used for both OCPJP 7 exam as well as OCPJP 7 upgrade exam.
