Hello guys,

I cleared the OCPJP 6 test today with 91% ! Feeling heavenly

I would like to share my preparation methodology and some tricks with you all:

1) As has been said thousands of times on this forum- Kathy and Berts is the best book for this exam, and indeed it is! It really toughens you up for the real exam and the Book exercises & Master Exam level are very high as compared to the real exam!

2) Regarding my preparation , well its been very inconsistent. I first started preparing for the exam last year in April and then due to some personal didn't study till October.

Then in October I started again and finished reading all the chapters from the book and when I was just about to start testing myself in different mock-tests, I again had to leave it because of some personal issues.

And finally I along with a good friend of mine re-started preparing for the exam but this time we set a deadline for ourselves, i.e exactly 1 month and we purchased the voucher well in advance and even got our exam scheduled very well in advance, i.e for Feb 9.

So obviously I wouldn't recommend that type of preparation methodology to anybody

3) And I got a dump from someone and solved some 290 questions from it in the last week. The dump questions level was very easy as compared to the Kathy Berts Book exercises & Master Exam level.

4) And on the last day tested my self with the Master Exam from Kathy Berts and got 53 % . So obviously the morale went down pretty quickly and for a moment I thought about postponing, but as I had delayed it many times before, it was a case of not delaying it further and so I just went for it.

And in the end I got 91% and I am mighty happy with the score because after getting just 53 % in the master exam, many doubt's crept into my mind and one of them was the possibility of a failure !

SO just wanted to share the experience with you guys and feeling just over the moon right now as it means a lot to me

Thanks Guys !

@vas nathan:

As I said I wouldn't recommend anyone to prepare like the way I did, rather I would say 1 months of reading & practicing Kathy/ Berts book is sufficient for the exam and I am reiterating here- Its the best book for the exam and it indeed toughens you up for the real exam.

And you can get a dump and practice it too, but only after you have went through thoroughly the Kathy Book at least 2 times.

I agree. Here's the link:
