This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
First I would like to thank Javaranch for this wonderful forum which helped me in getting the certification .
The exam is not very difficult . I slipped in areas of JAXR and security as i didnt cover all the topics of JAXR and security . Most important thing is playing with the verbs in security . Please read very carefully . Zaikin's prep material is awesome and helped me a lot . JAXR is such a verbose topic to cover .
I would suggest the following for people who are preparing
1.J2EE webservices by RMH 2.J2ee blue prints- Must read 3.Zaikin's prep material - Must read especially Chapter-8 Security. 4.Specification of SOAP , jaxrpc.
