Advice required for certificaton

Hi Folks,

I've previously obtained the SUN Java Programmer and Web Component Developer qualifications and I've been meaning to take this certification for tooo many years.

Anyway, I've now decided that it's time to bite the bullet.

It now appears that the Oracle OCMJEA certifications (which it's now called) requires a mandatory couse attendance and I'm guessing that there's no way of avoiding it. Could someone please confirm that this is the case?

Also, does anyone have a really good all-in-one study/practice source which you would recomend? Is the Cade/Sheil guide still relevant for the new exam?

Any help would be really appreciated. Many thanks.

Regards,
K

Cade book and my book are still relevant. You need to study adam bien patterns and bitter java for anti-patterns concepts.

Apart from these you need to understand best practices for jee 6. I think jee 6 tutorial is fine.

For the latest on the exam faqs, visit oracle site because the latest info is there.

The mandatory course can be completed anytime in the certification path. To get the success kit and the certificates you need to submit mandatory training details. So you go ahead and complete all levels without mandatory course. If you really require success kit and certification (hard copy) you go for mandatory course. Still you are certified architect even without success kit .

There are many online resources available for preparing Java Architect certification, however coderanch is the best place to start. I used cade book for my scea 5 preparation and it is really good book for this certification. To update your knowledge on latest exam objectives go for Oracle's tutorial, blueprint guidelines and Training Labs from epractize.
