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.
I passed the SCEA part 1 with 87%. Thank you all and esp.ly Laxmi R for providing the references to the resources. I felt the hour and a half time was insufficient for the exam. I could not complete my review. I missed a couple of questions on applet security.
I read the Mark Cade book. Took the mock tests in JavaQueries. Basically, if you have well rounded experience of architectural concepts you should come thro' without any alarms. I got a couple of tricky questions first up. For once, I feared I would flunk.
