Hi Collective Brain,

I am really confused about the Programmer I exam. Somewhere here I read that reading SCJP for Java 6 by Bates and Sierra would suffice for OCJA 7 Programmer I but when I checked the link for the syllabus http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/extra/certification/javase-7-programmer1.html I got more confused. The book covers some of the topics that are included for Programmer II exam.

Right now I'm really focused on passing the certification(on a really tight schedule) and will then go for the Programmer II exam. So should I read just according to the syllabus or should I complete every topic in the book? I mean I know reading the whole book would be very effective(which I will in the coming days) but I want to finish the certification asap. So can I be sure just to read according to the syllabus given on the oracle website(the link that I pasted above) or should I read everything for "just in case". Please help me out.

Thanks

Aki,
Bert wrote which chapters you need to read for the OCAJP in this thread. No need to read the rest of the book prior to your exam.
