Hello All,
I'm planning to take the OCPJP7 exam in the mid of April and hence will start my preparation soon. i'm new to Java certification. I saw that in order to get OCPJP certification, we first need to finish the OCAP7 exam and then take Java SE7 Programmer II exam. Also, the programmer II exam is available only in beta version it seems. I'm quite confused as to whether prepare for version 7 or 6. Any suggestions please?

Also it would be helpful to direct me to some resources where we can get the version 6 and 7 materials.

Great. Very nice tip. I will start preparing using the Version6 material now. Once the V7 books are available in the market, i hope it should be easy to cover the extra topics.

I agree. Here's the link:
