I had previously bought the SCJP 6.0 K&B book to take that test, but I can see there would be a better chance of passing the associate test first then going for the programmer one. Is it necessary or helpful enough to buy the OCAJP study guide if I already have the SCJP 6.0 study guide? Is there a good online reference that makes note of the changes in 7 without them getting lost in the entirety of Java?...

Hey Jack

The majority of the exam objectives for OCA Java 7 are covered in SCJP 6, so you are 85-90% covered from K&B book. Just read exception handling changes, string in switch case and numeric literal changes Java SE 7. Note that OCPJP 7 is tougher than this and it covers Java SE 7 changes in deeper level like try with resources, JDBC 4, Java NIO2, etc.
