This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Due to budget constraints and targets I guess, I have intentions of completing the three parts of OCMJEA for JEE5 this year. And then attend the mandatory training after knocking these 3 parts down later next year. I am already quite experienced and performed architecture tasks at some capacity.
Will I still get certified even if I deviate from the order that Oracle said in the OCMJEA 5 site?
1) My intended order will be : Part 1 Exam -> Part 2 Assignment -> Part 3 Essay -> Mandatory Training (which is really expensive).
2) Or is it strict that I follow this order : Mandatory Training -> Part 1 Exam -> Part 2 Assignment -> Part 3 Essay?
Hoping someone to shed some light and experience on this. Thanks!
