I have been studing for over a month.

Material I used for preparation:
1. Java SE 7 Programmer Exams by SG. Ganesh and Tushar Sharma :
2. http://java.boot.by/ocpjp7-upgrade/
3. Oracle tutorial http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/extra/certification/javase-7-upgrade.html and ofcourse
4. Java API documentation

Mock Exams:
5. Enthuware
6. www.javaquizplayer.com

#2 is probably the best resource from an exam point of view though I found the Oracle tutorial quite helpful too.

Dont underestimate the value of the Java API documentation.
There were a good number of questions that could only be answered if you have gone over the Java API.
Also there is no substitute for writing programs and tinkering with those to increase your level of understanding.

Usually we kinda know how an API is supposed to behave when it works.
The trick is to know in which cases it does not and what happens then, especially since this part is not very well documented and most questions surprisingly are focussed on this aspect.
So even when I got a question where the program was correct, I spent more time identifying to see if there is something wrong with it

And ofcourse thanks to this forum too for ample tips and guidance

Overall I felt the exam was a good stepping stone for getting your fundamentals straightened out.
