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.
Hi all Last friday I passed the exam. The score is not so high as I've seen here, but I did it!. I did about 10 mock exams(Marcus Green too), with 80-93% right in most of them. I'd been very busy this days...so I posted this today. Many thanks to all moderators and greenhorns. This site is doing a great job. I've learned a lot here. I hope to come here frequently a help others in their way to certification. About the exam 3 or 4 on IO 5 or 6 on Threads. 1 on GC. 4 or 5 on AWT. 3 on Collections. A lot of on declaration, access control, overriding, overloading, language fundamentals, etc. Time was a handicap for me. A lot of questions had a 10-15 lines code. Questions on threads were larger and tougher. I only had 15 minutes to review. Keep on coding...IMHO it's fundamental to practise with almost real code. Well, from now on I'll concentrate with OCP, as I'm working as a Oracle programmer and administrator. But I'll never forget JAVA...I think they both do a great duet...Don't you?
Congrats Angel!, That is a great score. I am also working on Oracle products and I am unable to decide whether to go for the OCP exam after my SJCP. Since these two are different domains, how do you think an OCP could value-add to someone with an SJCP? Regards, Uday.
