As you told that you are working in Java for past 1 yr....U must be having basic knowledge for concepts in Java.....Just brush up them and I suggest you can start with SCJP book by Kaithy Sierra...

Thanks for the reply. What are the prerequisites for OCPJP 7 certification. My question may sound odd, Do i have to clear any preliminary to write the OCJP 7?

I have to correct you here. it is not SCJP 7. it is OCPJP 7. and for OCPJP 7 certification you should have OCAJ 7 certification.or if you have previous programmer certification for e.g ocpjp 6 or 5 then you can go for upgrade . but since you are starting go through the first path. also the book for OCPJP 7 is out in the market. you can buy it and start preparing for it. also the syllabus of OCA 7 is subset of OCPJP 7 , so you won't require any seperate book for that.


OCPJP 6(100 %) OCEWCD 6(91 %) OCPJBCD(93%)
