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.
Towards my Java skills development this was my 2nd certification I gave on 15th August, 2013. It is known as Java EE 5 Web Component Developer Certified Professional Exam.
1) My Java background:
- 0 years of professional experience in Java EE.
- SCJP 6 : Java SE 6 Certified Programmer in December 2012.
2) Exam Score:
- I put an entire plan on paper i.e. Exam Date, No. of Books to go through, Study hours etc... and stuck it on my study room wall.
I highly recommend to go through only below books.
I) Head First Servlets and JSP, Second Edition by Bryam, Kathy & Bert. This was my primary source of reading. Extremely happy with this book. I had its hard copy.
II) SCWCD Study Guide. I have only used to go its practice exam questions. Its e-Book is FREE on internet.
- I started my Head First book reading on 1st of April.
- I work in the Sydney CBD and its 40 minutes travel by train. I use this time to read the book. I did it for 2.5 months.
- For 2 weeks from Mid June to end of June I have gone through SCWCD Study Guide practice exam questions.
- Entire July I was making small program samples in Eclipse for proof of concept.
- From 1st Aug to 14th Aug I started my revision of Head Fist book.
