Hello guys!
When I started studying the 1Z0-804 exam, the only text available was the Ganesh - Sharma "Certified Professional Java SE 7 Programmer Exams 1Z0-804." It 'a useful book but I prefer Mala Gupta "OCP Java SE 7 Programmer II Certification Guide".
According to me if you study very well the Mala Gupta book, which covers all the exam topics, and you do all the Enthuware OCPJP exercises, you can pass the exam without any problems with a great result.
I also suggest to implement some exercises on an IDE and to read many Java APIs .
Good luck!

Hi:

I find no book cover the detailed APIS of nio, collection, .. they only list them and show some code samples, it seems that we should read the API directly. I am currently doing the Enthuware test, and find I still need
to read more APIs than the book covers. Some questions are asking for a particular options in some APIs. Anyway, I think if the target is a good score, then any book is not enough.

Congratulations, this is an awesome score!

You approach is very right, especially reading the API and practicing.

Hi guys,
I give you my feedback about Whizlabs and Enthuware in OCAJP and OCPJP: I passed OCAJP with a score 81% using both Enthuware + Whizlabs whose difficulties seemed equal to me and harder then certification questions by about 10%.

Preparing OCPJP, I found Whizlabs 10% harder than Enthware and Enthuware equals to the certification questions.
I passed Enthware with an average of 65% and Whizlabs with an average of 55%.
After that, for another month, I implemented almost all of the Enthuware +Whizlabs exercises on IntelljIDEA with many changes and read very well Mala Gupta OCJP MEAP + many Java APIs: this training made the difference when I passed OCJP with 93%.

Thanks Aleksandra!
I started to study Spring + Hibernate : if you are doing the same do you have some suggestions about some good manuals or is it preferable to do Spring + Hibernate tutorials online?

I will probably start with this: Java EE 7 tutorial
After that will do Spring and Hibernate. Unfortunately didn't find "All in one" study guide yet. Will try to learn using documentation that they provide. It's maybe not the most pleasant way, but I believe it's a right way.
Alternatively there are couple of nice introductions on youtube, but again only as an introduction.
