Passed. The next step?

Hello all

I passed OCPJP 6 today with 98%. Couldn't have done it without you all!

Thank you for everything!

That doesn't mean I'll go inactive on this forum however.

I still do plan to give the upgrade exam(to 7) later and I am also thinking about the Developer exam.

Congrats on a great score. Upgrade exam is great. Oracle had imposed some pre requisites on the developer exam so it wasn't an attractive option for me but you can choose to do otherwise.

Also, its not OCJP1.6. The correct form is OCPJP6 .


[ SCJP 6.0 - 90% ] , JSP, Servlets and Learning EJB.

Hey congrats.. Thats an awesome score !!!

Was K&B book enough in the sense that not one strange syntax and rule that was not mentioned in K&B book appear in the exam??

Congrats Pritish!!

I have similar question from you? Is k&B is enough? I read that twice!! How should we decide that we can give the exam?
Any suggestions?

Thanks

@Nitish : Thanks, and I fixed that signature of mine

@Mansi : K&B develops your concepts, but to be absolutely through and thorough you need to give many mock exams.

The mock exams show you your weaknesses. For each wrong answer you have to think about what answer you chose and why you chose it.

It is the only way to clarify and strengthen what you learnt. Every piece of code written by you will help you towards cracking the exam.

A lot of questions have the compiler gives error or exception is thrown at runtime options. So you need to know everything properly.

You need to be able to check whether the code violates the compiler's rules, and then check how it will perform at runtime by following the logic.

Give atleast 5 or so mocks, and if you can score even 40+% on those tougher ones, consider yourself prepared enough to pass.

Remember that the passing is important - I don't think the marks are shown on the certificate.

Consider this as learning for life!

@Kedar : As far as I think, K&B doesn't show you *all* the twists and tricks, though it covers a fair many of them. Mock exams help in that regard, the tougher the better.

Like Nitish has mentioned before, Devaka's ExamLab and K&B Masterexams are sufficient.

Above all, remember that OCPJP is becoming quite common now. Once we get a job, we will have to vie for the Developer certification - because that really shows our ability to develop projects filled with code.

Well Pritish, if it were the days of Sun then i would say i am late for the Developer exam. Now due some not so needed pre-requisites put by Oracle on the developer exam, it doesn't seem so right. But on a whole, it depends on making an application and that's what i love to do.

Devaka's ExamLab

The setup for ExamLab is not present on Devaka's website because the links are broken. I found it and uploaded it to my mediafire acc so here you go.

At your current state, take 2 ExamLab exams and all of the Masterexams if you wish.

On the day before the exam, review your notes and the 2min drills at the end of each chapter.

@Nitish : I suppose you're right about the excess baggage Oracle has included...it's a pity.

@Cyril. Yes. That is correct but make sure you take some mock exams because you need to know both the concept and how they test you on the concept.


OCPJP6, OCEJWCD, OCEEJBD

So tomorrow I can do what others can't.
