I took Java SE 7 Programmer I (1Z0-803) and passed with 76% on the passing score of 63%. I am thinking about taking Java SE 7 Programmer I (1Z0-805) in a few months. Please give me advice whether if I should take (1Z0-804) or (1Z0-805).  I graduated with my masters in Physics, specialized in computational physics. I wrote programs in C for 4 years. I took Intro to Java I in college. I have been using Java at work for almost two years. Work programs are very specific and I am not a full time programmer, which means I cannot rely on my work experience for this exam very much. I will be using the following book.

Java Programming Learn Advanced Skills from a Java Expert by Poornachandra Sarang (Currently Reading)
OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide (Exams 1Z0-803 & 1Z0-804) (Certification Press) by Sierra, Kathy
Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 7 Programmer Exams 1Z0-804 and 1Z0-805: A Comprehensive OCPJP 7 Certification Guide (Expert's Voice in Java) by Ganesh, S G

I am planning to buy self-test from Kaplan a few weeks before I take the test. I will also buy a set of test from Enthuware Software. Enthuware's questions are very challenging. Please let me know if I should add anything on list for this exam. Thank you very much in advance.

I believe you want to take 1Z0-804, not 805. 805 is the upgrade exam for if you already hold an OCP for a previous version of Java.
