I took the exam today (long story why I decided to do it now.) Anyway, I blogged about my experiences.

It's a long blog post. Summary:
  • I got a 98%
  • I'm overqualified to take the exam
  • Enthuware JA +V7 is good
  • K&B is good if you plan to take the OCPJP after and don't mind learning both at the same time
  • choice of exam center really matters
  • and more - read the blog post

  • [OCA 8 book] [Blog] [JavaRanch FAQ] [How To Ask Questions The Smart Way] [Book Promos]
    Other Certs: SCEA Part 1, Part 2 & 3, Core Spring 3, TOGAF part 1 and part 2
