The best starting point is to get the official study guide, search amazon for java scjp to quickly find it.

There are so many free dump sites, those have some PDF files for SCJP certification, such as BrainDumps, ActualTest etc. Please go through the sites and download the file free of cost.
The two books on certification, they are :

• Sun Certified Programmer for Java 5 SCJP ( Exam 310-055) Exam Study Guide - Kathy Sierra Bert Bates.
• SCJP Exam For J2SE 5 - Paul Sanghera, Ph.D
