Questions about OCPJP 7

Hello Ranchers,

I passed the OCA JP 7 exam yesterday, and I thought it would make sense to tackle the OCP JP 7 exam next. But, with it being a new test, I have some concerns and questions.

1. There does not seem to be any book available for this exam. What are people using to prep? I see that there is a tutorial on the Oracle site. I didn't find the OCA tutorial helpful, so I don't want to rely on it for the OCP.

2. I used Enthuware's mock exams as part of my prep for the OCA exam. They do not have an OCP offering. What are the alternatives? I see that Epractize has OCPJP7 exams. Does anyone have experience with them?

3 I know that OCP JP 7 is in beta, as test 1Z1-804, and that it will remain in beta until 9 June. Is there any problem taking the beta test, or is it better to wait? Will the full test be available right after 9 June, or will there be a time gap while they tune it?

Thanks so much,

Mike

Hi Saloni,

I had taken a look at the FAQ previously, and I just took another look. The only part that touches on the OCPJP7 exam is the link to Mikalai Zaikin's OCPJP 7 Upgrade Notes. But that truly seems to be for the upgrade exam, not the full exam. I apologize if I've missed it, but it isn't clear to me how the FAQ addresses the questions that I've raised. Could you elaborate a little more?

Thanks,

Mike

Yes, book is not available for 7 yet, but if you don't want wait then you can use old 6 book, when you will finish this book i am sure till that new book will be in market.And every book comes with cds,so i am sure it will have some free mock tests along with it.
