I passed the OCJA SE 5/6 in September 2012.

I am taking the OCAJP1 SE 7 in December 2012.

I have a question to anybody who has taken the exam. Did you find many questions involving the equals method?

First, congrats on passing the OCA 5/6... and make sure you put your name on the OCA wall of fame (second table)... http://www.coderanch.com/how-to/java/OcajpWallOfFame.

And yes, you'll see .equals() on the exam quite a bit, along with ==. Make sure you know them well. The OCA 7 is not to be taken light-heartedly. Consider taking the Enthuware mock exams for 1Z0-803, the cost is only ten bucks for several OCA 7 mock exams.

Yes that is part of the test. Understanding how memory is allocated in the stack/heap helps explain when the == versus the equals method should be used.
