This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
How long does it take to study for any one of these exams if you're new to Java? I have my days free now since I'm jobless. Are most of the practice tests on javaranch for CX-310-025 and will they suffice to pass the CX-310-035 exam esp for someone new?
