James,

What would you say are the mostly challenging/tricky parts of the new exam version? Or, if I am already a SCJP from some time ago, what would I need to watch out for the most on the new exam? Thanks.

If you are already a SCJP the most challenging parts of the OCAJP7 exam will be very limited: a few new language constructs defined in Project Coin (e.g. underscores in numbers, strings in enums,...). The OCAJP7 is an entry-level certification, so if you have already a java certification it should be quite straightforward. But the follow-up certification (OCPJP7) is much more challenging with a bunch of new topics: jdbc, nio2, concurrency api, localisation,... and also a few more advanced new language constructs (try-with-resources, catching multiple exceptions,...)


SCJA, SCJP (1.4 | 5.0 | 6.0), SCJD
