I just did the scja mc graw hill study gude, exam cx-310-019 if you want specifics, and I failed by 2 questions. I have been programming for years and studying for this test for a month and I am out of ideas. I've been studying j2ee but the test was about finding syntax errors and uml. Anyone have material I can study before my test? I have it scheduled the tuesday after the next. Also I didn't fail because of my bad studying habbits, nothing I learned was on that test. Maybe 2 questions MAX. Is it the practice test or is it really that difficult? People have been saying it's a joke but that test was not easy.

OCAJP 7 is available study in that context because previous Associate level exams were totally different and you will surely pass that exam dont worry about it. Its just checking your basics and if you have been in touch with the language for sometime you will find new exam a bit easy.. All d best for your exams!!!

Should I concentrate on UML or j2EE and EJBs?
Thank for the support!
EDIT: read it wrong

UML and Java EE (e.g., EJBs) are not on the OCAJP7 exam. There was coverage on the SCJA exam, but the coverage has been removed.

Dakota, Did you write the exam again, or still preparing for the exam? If you haven't written the exam, which version of this exam are you preparing for now? Java version 5/6 or the newer version Java 7?

Answer to you original question will depend on the version of the exam that you are preparing for.
