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.
Congratulations!!! I have scheduled my exam for next week. Can you share your learning experience while preparing for the exam?Also, I would like to know if you encountered the legacy questions(Serialization, wait(), notify()) during the exam. Thank you.
Can you share your learning experience while preparing for the exam?
I found CertPal.com to be useful, but first I made sure that I was getting 100% on the Rules Roundup. I also used the two SCJP exams that come on the CD that came with K&B. I did these two mock exams as "open book" exams and checked the answers as I went through them to get feedback. K&B was very useful. I did the questions at the end of each chapter until I was getting 67% as I went through the book. As I said in my original post on this thread OCP Practice Exams were unnecessarily hard (as were the questions at the end of each chapter of K&B).
I purchased 7 mock exams from Whizlabs for nearly $50.00 but I didn't bother using them after the first exam since the questions seemed to be off-topic and much of the code wasn't even indented at all.
Also, I would like to know if you encountered the legacy questions(Serialization, wait(), notify())
There were no questions about Serialization. There was one question about notify() but none about wait() nor notifyAll()
