Which chapters from head first java should i study thoroughly to cover syllabus of OCA7?


Why do we fall? So that we can learn to pick ourselves up.

I personally really like the Head First Java book.

If you have time, just read through the whole thing.... it wouldn't hurt to have some extra coverage.

It's a great book.

Hi Saumyaraj,

Well Robert is being kind, thanks Robert!

HF Java was NOT designed to prepare you for the OCA exam - any version. It probably covers a lot of the same material, but I'm sure it misses topics also, and it doesn't have any mock exam questions.

Robert has a new book, as does Mala - both of which are focused purely on the OCA exam - those books would be much better for your purpose.

hth,

Bert

Thanks Bert, but I also have K&B6. I was planning to first finish head first and then have a dive into K&B6..
Please notify the extra topics we have to cover other than in K&B6..
