Dear friends,
I have a slight confusion here.
My question is, "In order to take the OCJP7 certification exam, is it imperative to take the OCJA 7 exam first?"
Please do clarify the doubt.


Still a beginner at crafting quality coding but have the zeal to learn more. Your help would be appreciated.

Yes,OCJA 7 is must before taking OCJP7.

Thank you for the quick response. Now one more question in this regard, How do i register for the OCJA 7 exam ? I checked Prometeric website but there was no option. In fact what is the underlying process that must be undertaken to register for the exam. I have read several reviews online wherein the exam takers have complained about various problems starting from infrastructure to exam management issues at various testing centers. So in this regard what would be your advice to find a fair enough testing center including the registration process?

It is necessary to clear both OCA and OCP to get the certification. However, order is not fixed. Logically, one needs to take OCA first and OCP next; but, one can opt for OCP first and OCA next. Oracle will not stop you to take OCP even if you have not cleared OCA.

It's not like you said nancy. Only we can take OCA first and OCP next.

Order is fixed. Please have a look oracle site carefully.

OOPS!! Sorry.
Thanks Koilraj for pointing this out.

I checked the oracle site (see last two questions on the provided URL) and found that oracle has now mandated OCA before OCP (which was not the case earlier).

Take OCJP 6 first is another option.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
