Hi fellows Im planning to take the Exam Number: 1Z0-805
Upgrade to Java SE 7 Programmer
and I can see that the topics are not the same than the programmer certification, some of them include JDBC and Patterns please
can somebody give me some advice or reference documentation to study those topics that are not in the IZ0-803 ?
As of now, there's no official certification book which contains all topics for OCPJP 7. So, As of now, you are on your own.
However, I can suggest couple of books:
1) Head First Design Patterns (for DP)
2) Core Java (for JDBC) - read only JDBC part from that book. The book is huge (2 volumes) and it is not specifically written for OCPJP candidates.
