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 passed the exam today at 86%, the exam is easier than the mock test(Enthuware) I took, but it really covers all the objectives.
I made several mistakes on some very basic concepts like assertion, File, Regex. I should have reviewed more.
My weakest part is thread, so last one month I spent a lot of time on this forum reading old posts, it helped a lot.
Congrats about passing scjp 6 . kindly brief me up the topics on which you majorly
had questions in the exam
Once again congrats And all the best for your further endeavours!!
As I remember, there are a lot of questions on OO, override, overload. Some questions are tricky, but you will be used to it if you do enough mock test.
Two assertion questions, one garbage collection, three or four thread questions. a few I/O question, one Regex question.
I got one IO and one Regex question wrong, which are very basic, I wouldn't miss it if I write a few more samples.
I had 50 minutes left when I completed my exam, then I reviewed all marked questions, I found the real exam are easier than the mock test. I was using enthuware as my main mock test, the questions and the format are similar to the real exam. There are a lot of free mock test available on internet as well.
I will suggest give enough time to do mock test before the exam, the text book is good, but not enough for the exam. I took 6 sets mock test and used one week to review everything before I finally took the exam. I failed in my first Mock test, but passed the rest.
