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 was surprised to see 3 questions on ejb/resource-related deployment-descriptor elements, which I thought were not covered in the exam and 4 questions on Design patterns (not my best subject - I'm still confused between ServiceLocator and BusinessDelegate )
There were also 3 questions on classic tags but none on SimpleTags.
I was also believed you only had to get 59% (that's what it stated on Sun's site) so I was a little suprised to see 62% as the passing score on the final print-out. Has the exam format changed recently?
Anyway, I passed, despite being a bit out of date and that's the main thing, now time for some before
PS: I used HFJS, jsp/servlet specs , this forum (many thanks!) and lots of mocke exams to fill in gaps,
