I guess you are referring to OCAJ 5/6 as OCAJP 6 doesn't exist. Or do you mean OCPJP 6?

If you are a java programmer (developer) just go for OCPJP 6 (1 exam) or OCPJP 7 (if you don't have any Oracle/Sun java programmer certification yet, you'll have to pass 2 exams, otherwise just the upgrade exam). The OCAJ 5/6 certification has very little (none) added value for a programmer/developer.

I was going to go for SCJP6 first, but damned if I'm not stupid as hell. Kind of humbling trying to take these certification mock tests. If you're starting from scratch, it looks like the OCAJP7 is the way to go since they are sticking it to you for 2 tests up to OCP level anyway. I am scoring a good amount higher on the OCA mock tests than the stuff in the K&B book which looks to be way more involved...

For programmer OCA JP 7 is the best.

Read the difference between these two certifications.

If your ultimate goal is to get OCPJP7 then it will take 2 exams no matter what. OCAJP7+OCPJP7 or OCPJP6+upgrade. So it depends on your comfort and knowledge.
