Besides k&B7, I know Mala Gupta is also working on an OCPJP7 study guide. For the OCPJP7 it's slim pickings at this moment. As far as I know currently the only book you have is Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 7 Programmer Exams 1Z0-804 and 1Z0-805. I haven't read that one, so I don't know if it's good quality or not.

Hello everyone,

Here is my summary for all points tested on the OCA Java SE 7 exam.
I got 93% with this document.
I very much recommend it.

OCA Study Guide - Edward Finegan and Robert Liguori

this is good book has many errors if you want have experience to find it.
if you confusing with if then in java - your confusing become stronger.
one other of problem unreachable statements - author use IDE that correct some mistakes. People who use it in preparation must check all code that give author (javac/java - book has strong explanation how to use it - one that likes in book).
I will not recommend this book if you not ready to find mistakes in book.
ps. After quick review i decide not use this book in preparation.

A study guide with many errors can never be a good book! A study guide is intended to learn people the concepts and syntax correctly and pass the exam, not to find mistakes in a book. It's of course through that you have good/excellent understanding of the exam topics if you can spot (and correct) mistakes in a study guide. But I prefer buying some mock exams to test my knowledge instead of a study guide trying to spot as many mistakes as possible

(Disclaimer: I didn't have read this study guide myself. The reviews on Amazon are very mixed: from 5 stars to just 1 star)

Hi Filip,

First of all, a warm welcome to the CodeRanch!

Filip Djuricic wrote:is OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide (Exams 1Z0-803 & 1Z0-804) by Kathy Sierra Good?

I think it's the best book on the market which covers both exams. I used these study guides myself to pass SCJP 1.4, 5.0 and 6.0.

Good luck!
Kind regards,
Roel

Hello everyone!

Next week i will try to pass the OCAJP 7 exam. I was practicing mock exams with "OCAJP Practice Exams - Hanumant Deshmukh" book.

But i have some questions about the real exam in comparision with this book.

Does each question in the real exam tell you how many correct options you have to choose? In this book, in every questions they tell you something like "Select X options."

For me this is really important because in this book they tell you the correct options and i wouldnt like to go to the exam and realize that they didnt tell you how many correct answers you have to choose.

Thanks!
