OCPJP 6 (SCJP 6) pre-requisites

Hi mates,

After preparing for OCPJP 6 (SCJP 6) for almost a year, I went to Pearson VUE to purchase the voucher. I was surprised to be told by their representative that I needed to buy and attend the training for this before I could purchase the test.

I asked the person to confirm this. After some time, came up with the different story. He then told me that without attending the training, I could take the test but would not be able to earn the certificate.

Can anybody please guide me on this? Do I need to attend the training sessions first?

No, there is no training you require other than your self-study. That person was trying to sell their courses to you.

By saying that you won't be able to earn the certificate, he is trying to demotivate you. Don't listen to that jerk, prove him wrong.

This board is filled with people who did not do any course before giving OCPJP6. Do not worry, you are in the same boat! How angry this makes me. He has no right to dupe you like that.
