This week's book giveaway is in the OCMJEA forum. We're giving away four copies of OCM Java EE 6 Enterprise Architect Exam Guide and have Paul Allen & Joseph Bambara on-line! See this thread for details.
Now we are looking for somebody who has recently taken the OCA Java SE7 exam to review the updated manuscript. We are looking for someone who has within the last month or two taken the exam to tell us if what we cover in our book is sufficient.
Please contact me (email is in the profile) or post here.
I took the exam OCA SE P1 and failed miserably today . The fact the my preparation was not upto the mark was quite evident when the exam kicked off.
Lot of basic questions but not direct. There were many easy one's and the core of all the question was basic java, like encapsulation, polymorphism, few questions on overriding vs overloading etc.
