Hey..I want to start my preparation for OCP-JP exam-1Z0-851. I have a few queries regarding that.
1. What is the exam fees?
2. Is it necessary to attend any classroom teaching or self study is enough?
3. Do we need to purchase the course material provided on Sun's website or there are any other sources available.?
4. For SCJP "SCJP Sun Certified Programmer for Java 6 Exam 310-065 [Hardcover]
by Kathy Sierra, Bert Bates" was enough. Is this book sufficient for OCP-JP.

Are you already SCJP 6? If yes then you don't need to give this exam as its the same exam (with changed exam code). You can find a lot of information about SCJP in the ScjpFaq...

No. I do not posses any kind of certification and this is my first attempt. So, I am very confused.

1. The exam fees is around 300$
2. Generally self study is enough
3. No, you are not compelled to purchase Sun's material
4. The book by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates can be used for the new exam as well as the objectives/topics of the exam have not changed, only the exam code has changed from 310-065 to 1Z0-851...

If Oracle's site says 5845 INR then that's the price

Well, that is good to know. Because $300 is way too much.
Thank you.
