SCJP 5.0 is the latest Entry Level Certification exam provided by SUN Microsystems. SCJP 5.0 is based up on J2SE 5.0. I recommend that u should choose J2SE 1.4 as it has more resources on the web. The fee is around $150. You can buy a Voucher online and take the test at any thompson optometric center (the voucher would be valid for 1 year using which you get 20% discount).

The recommended scjp books that you need to follow are:
1. A Programmer's Guide to Java Certification by Khalid Azim Mughal, Rolf Rasmussen
2. Sun Certified Programmer & Developer for Java 2 Study Guide (Exam 310-035 & 310-027) Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates
