First of all, welcome to the JavaRanch!

Secondly, don't highjack someone else's thread to ask your question. Just start a new thread and ask your questions there.

Thirdly, as an answer to your question: there is nothing shared about the real assignments, because that's violating Oracle's policy. So if you want to know how an assignment looks like you can always buy the SCJD book by Andrew Monkhouse: it gives you all you need to know to pass this assignment based on "Denny's DVD" (a project similar to the assignment you'll get for this certification). You can also read Roberto's paper.

Finally don't forget you have to be SCJP (any version) certified to be eligible for this certification. And you also have to meet the mandatory course requirement (more info on the official Oracle OCMJD pages).

Good luck!

Hi Roel De Nijs,
Heard people saying the "SCJD j2se 5" is outdated and also the book "SCJD book by Andrew Monkhouse" is for J2SE 5 version of SCJD?
Please correct me,If I'm going wrong.

and, if yes?
is the book you prescribed is enough for preparing for SCJD ?
If not, What is the book, you suggest for it??

Ok. Lets get the facts straight.
1) There's no OCMJD version for JDK 7.
2) Currently, latest OCMJD version is for JDK 6.
3) Now what is the possibility that you would be writing some code - which is part of JDK 6, but not of JDK 5? I think its very minimal.

What I'm trying to say is - OCMJD for JDK 6 doesn't mandate a developer to use all new features of JDK 6. The only condition is - code must successfully compile and run on latest stable release of JDK 6.

That given, I guess you won't face any issues while using Monkhouse's book. I've used that book for OCMJD 6 and did not have any problems.

I hope this helps.

I can only say something about the SCJD book by Andrew Monkhouse, because that's the one I used to pass the exam.

You (and the people who said the book is outdated) are completely wrong! The OCPJP certifications make sure you have a decent knowledge about the API of the different java versions (JDK5, JDK6, JDK7,...). But the OCMJD is a certification about being a (good) developer, so it's about concepts, design patterns, problem solving, taking decisions, documenting your code, writing a user manual,... All these things are not dependent on a given java version. So you just have to apply the things you learn from the book with the syntactic sugar of a given java version (which you learnt while preparing for OCPJP) and you'll ace this certification.

Hope it helps!

Hi Roel De Nijs and Anayonkar Shivalkar,
Thanks for clarifying my doubts.
Yeah, you guys are right..
It is not in which we code that is not important, how we code and document it is more important.

Thanks guys for replying

P.S. Sorry for posting the same in 2 threads.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
