my intention is not like stopping you, you can really take the exam in a month, but once you get into it you may feel like you need more practising. also scjp1.5 has released and you can go for it instead of scjp1.4. its your wish anyway.
once you got your basics right, and you go through a book like Kathy sierra and bert bates or khalid mughal's then you can make it easily. what i would suggest is , take plenty of mocks for practice.
anyway,if you need any other stuff related to java you can ask me. i'll try to help you out.
