This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I passed recently the OCAJP 7 exam with 88%. Not bad for a noobie in programming. This was my first programming language that I seriously studied after college. Honestly, I was not into programming before but I just decided to look for better opportunity aside from my previous jobs as a Technical Support and Service Desk for almost 5 years. It was all worth it and looking forward to learn more about Java and hopefully take the OCPJP 7 very soon.
