For SCJP 6 you can read the Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates book (also called K&B). Go through the ScjpFaq for lot of information regarding SCJP. For SCJP 6 you don't need to give SCJA first, but for SCJP 7 you need to give SCJA before SCJP.

As for SCJP 6 vs SCJA 7, there is no book currently available for SCJA 7 (that I know of ). And I'm not a fan of the new format where you have to give 2 exams to be SCJP. So my suggestion would be to give SCJP 6. Others may disagree...

Thank you Ankit.
So that means we can give SCJP6/OCPJP6 exam directly without having passed any exam before it?

Hello Ranchers!!
I am planning to give OCPJP 7.
I am about to complete the book 'Head First Java'.
I was wondering whether the exam SCJP 7, of which the name was changed to OCPJP 7, have the same exam topics for the exam, I mean that has Oracle changed the topics... And, for the matter of different topics, does the book 'SCJP 6 Study Guide' by K&B cover the topics for preparing the exam OCPJP 7. Help needed...
Thanks.
