This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Makes sure you are taking the Java 7 version of the OCPJA rather than the old OCA. The old one doesn't qualify as a pre-req for the new SCJP (OCPJP.) It's a dead end. See our OCPJA and OCPJP forums for lots of details and FAQ about the exams.
