Hello after web service I would like to get OCMJD certification and I am wondering how to face it.
I know this kind of certification is different from the others and it truly proves your java skills with assigment and essay rather than multiple choice exam but
I really need a book like reference (it's physiological for me); my plan is first to finish "SCJD Exam with J2SE 5 Second Edition" book and roberto perillo notes. After take the "Developing Applications With the Java SE 6 Platform" course from oracle, it looks the most interesting course to my needs and best suited for this certification (I guess so)
how does it sounds ?
thanks
Davide

Excellent book choice! I used the same one Roberto's paper is also a great resource for this certification. Those 2 resources and this forum will almost guarantee passing this certification.

Regarding Oracle's course: if it's most interesting for your needs then you should simply go for it. But ddon't take this certification into account when deciding which course to take. Because you really don't need a course to pass this certification: the book, the paper, this forum and your effort will be more than enough to pass. If you plan to take the Architect certification I would opt for a course which is on both lists, so you already meet the mandatory course requirement for that certification too

Alright!

The paper that my good buddy Roel mentioned can be found here.

Thanks a lot for your nice answers and tips. Roel I take the course mainly because is mandatory :-) and I hope with the one I choosed could fill my gaps because I still feel a little weak to handle whole project all by myself
from the design to implementation
