This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I am Java programmer from India, looking forward to take up some java certification since last 1 year and delayed. Now, I have buckled up myself to take it ASAP. I did some research on Java certifications.
Here are my findings, and found that I have two options.
My question is which one should I take, Associate 7 or Professional 6. As Professional 7 requires Associate 7 as a prerequisite, I don't want to talk about this.
Today its Java7, I am really muddled about taking the decision of selecting the exam Associate 7 or Professional 6, both have the same cost in India.
Did anyone cleared the Associate 7 exam recently, can you share your experience? If I take up Professional 6, is it a meaningful or worth, I mean after Java 7 release?
Having the professional cert means more than the associate one. Version numbers are secondary. So if you are only going to take one exam, you will find the OCJP 6 to be much more challenging any mean more.
