I got a lot of great resources from this site to get that cert, now I want to move on to the next one, Java SE7 Programer II. I am in school and have been coding in java for the past year, so the Enthuware mocks were good enough to iron out the small details so that I could pass the test. There are a lot of things in the next cert such as concurrency, regex, and a lot of other details data structure api information that I am not so familiar with. I am having a harder time finding resources for the next test as I did on the first one. I am planning on using the Enthuware tests again and also the tutorials found here http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/extra/certification/javase-7-programmer2.html. Are there other books or links that someone could point me to that would also help me out? Thanks!

If you are looking to take the Oracle 1Z0-804 exam to get the OCJP there is only one book out now, but a few others will be coming out soon. For basic learning Oracle, Jenkov, TutorialsPoint, and other websites have tutorials on these topics ... just Google it. You can use the Enthuware, Transcender, and Whizlabs types of practice exams once you are near the end of studying.

Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 7 Programmer Exams 1Z0-804 and 1Z0-805: A Comprehensive OCPJP 7 Certification - Ganesh and Sharma {Already out. Not enough practice questions IMHO and the ones they do have are answered inline, so you have to cover the answers with your hand.}
OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide (Exams 1Z0-803 & 1Z0-804) - Sierra and Bates {Coming in Oct. I haven't read their previous books, but they have been popular.}
OCP Java SE 7 Programmer II Certification Guide: Prepare for the 1ZO-804 exam - Gupta {This one got pushed out to the end of the year, but the author's 1Z0-803 book was by far was the best resource for me for the 1Z0-803 test. I already have this one on pre-order}
A Programmer's Guide to Java SE 7 Certification: A Comprehensive Primer - Mughal and Rasmussen {This one won't be out until the end of January at least}

Congratulations on passing! For OCPJP7, I used the early access ebook version of Mala Gupta's book as my learning resource. It's about 90-95% complete, and the parts that are missing, you can fill in with Oracle's online resources. This combined with Enthuware's tests made studying very effective.
