If you're pursuing the OCP for Java 7 certification, and if you're not already certified, you now have to pass your OCA exam before you can attempt the OCP exam.

If you're studying for the OCA, our book (K&B 6), should give you pretty good coverage. If you study the following chapters from K&B 6 you should be in pretty good shape for the OCA:

chaps: 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5
chap 6 - the String and StringBuilder sections
chap 7 - the hashCode() and equals() sections, and only the ArrayList class.
chap 10

The chapters (and sections) listed above ARE NOT a perfect overview of everything you might encounter on the real exam, but I'd say they represent a 95% overlap. We'll be nailing down that last 5% over the next several weeks.

In terms of the OCP - we have some MONSTER additions to make to K&B 7 to cover that exam - we're working on it!

hth,

Bert


So, some point ago I read this quote, and having studied all of that save for whatever changed new for Java 7, I need to ask; what's the "last 5%" that they "[nailed] down"? Did they ever follow-up post to that?

Hey Fred,

We haven't forgotten! We should have the last details organized in the next couple of weeks. When we do, we'll post the updated info on this forum.

Thanks,

Bert
