OCA mock exams/study material?

Hello, I was studying for the OCPJP 6 and I have the Sierra & Bates book which I have gone through once. I'm on a second pass now.
However I have decided to go for the OCA instead. 1Z0-803 and then 1Z0-804, OCPJP. Can anybody recommend study material apart from the book that I already have?
I have read the sticky on this forum and realize what is relevant from this book.

Also where are there mock exams? Preferably free ones.

Thank you.

Thank you, that is the book and sticky I have already read.

I am just looking for additional sources. I looked at the FAQ and the free exams don't appear to be free, so I would like to find some mock ones, if any are available.

Paul,

Will you go for OCAJ 5/6 or OCAJ 7? Because there is a huge difference between these certifications (although both Associate) in required knowledge.

Kind regards,
Roel


SCJA, SCJP (1.4 | 5.0 | 6.0), SCJD

Sorry for omitting this information Roel, 5/6 seem quite rudimentary, so I will be going for 7 as that seems about half as hard as the SCJP 6 was, and am looking for material related to that.

Moved to the more appropriate forum.

I don't think there are already books on the market especially for this certification. I have done a technical review of a book for this certification, so I know publishers are working on them And I can say that if you use K&B6 and stick to the objectives for this certifications you'll have a great resource.

Hello,

I am using K&B 6 book for my OCA preperations.
Please share the topics for which I should be definately studying from "other" sources, since you have been part of pre-natal stage of official book.

Also, please share which book and when is it going to be released.

Thanks

Paul,

Initially I tried working with K&B book, mapping it with the OCA exam topics. But self mapping can become confusing - I had to be extra careful in mapping topics, leaving the ones that were not required.

But I believe we have options now - to study with books that are specifically meant for the OCA Java exam. I just ordered OCA Certification guide by Manning (www.manning.com/gupta) and am liking it. It uses a lot of images and 'Twist' exercises. I simply loved both of these.

cheers,
Lewis

Can not find this book, can anyone point out a store who sells this book?

Right now im training with the EPractize labs. Is this a good way to train for the OCA 7?
