The question to ask yourself is "What's your java experience?"

What's OCEJP? There are 2 routes to OCPJP7. Path 1 = OCPJP6+OCPJP7 upgrade; Path 2 = OCAJP7 + OCPJP7

The objectives covered by OCPJP6 and OCPJP7 are quite different, namely JP7 covers a wider range of topics (eg JDBC, NIO, design patterns, localization) that JP6 doesn't have.

The OCAJP7 objectives are basically a subset of JP6 objectives plus some Java 7 new features eg string in switch

Simply put, if you are new to java (eg < 6 months preferably < 1 year ) then go for path 2. Else path 1.

I agree with K. Tsang on this one: the OCPJP6 and OCPJP7 update track is only useful if you are already certified and thus you can become OCPJP7 certified with just 1 exam. If you are not already certified, you'll always have to take 2 exams and then is the OCAJP7 and OCPJP7 path the way to go.
