Hi folks,

Today, i become a Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 6 Programmer.
Oh! yes, i have cleared OCPJP 6 with 85% score.

I want to share my journey/experience with you, all.

I have referred (Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates)'s both books available in the market for OCPJP 6. I have also given three mock tests available on CertPal; they are very good. And also i get participated on JavaRanch forum; to ask some questions and also try to give answers of some...

As i have a good knowledge about Java language, i am ready to give Exam after 26 days of preparation.

There are 60 questions in the exam with time limit of 150 minutes. It is easier than my expectation. I have not got any drag & drop questions. I have completed my exam in 125 minutes with review also..bit faster..ha ha ha...But it is my mistake that i have not given more time to some questions ... at the end of the exam, i am thinking that it is a very very easy exam...but still i could not get full marks...But i am happy to get Certified with a good score...
The experience with exam center is very bad. Because during my exam, they have lost internet connectivity and also i could not get a silent place for the exam; it is very noisy...boooom...booom...haaa haaa haaa...Ohhhh...

I have given every mock tests available in the Practice book of Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates, and in all the test i am not able to get passing score . They are very tough than the real exam. But it is good to try them once; they are very GOOOOOOD; Each practice exam gives you some new challenges. Also, in mock tests of CertPal, i have cleared only last test with 81% and in other not able to get even passing score.
During the review of all tests, i had got that the questions are just twisted or require more attention to give the answer. So, during the exam, you require a keen eyes...
