This week's book giveaways are in the iOS and Features new in Java 8 forums. We're giving away four copies each of Barcodes with iOS: Bringing together the digital and physical worlds and Core Java for the Impatient and have the authors on-line! See this thread and this one for details.
Attended OCAJP today. And passed with 78%. Passing score is now 63. Since this is the first time I am taking the exam, cannot comment on whether the exam is easier than before. I started going through Mala Gupta's book from last month. It is fair to say I rushed through the book, as I was (over-)confident I would pass the exam(I have almost 4 years experience as Java Developer). Took 3 mock exams of enthuware in 2 days (yesterday and today). Went through the wrong questions and went for the exam. Due to work restrictions/commitments could not devote more time to actual preparation. Actual exam was easier than the mocks.
Decided to take certification as I am looking for a job change and want to distinguish my resume. Next up OCPJP!
Does the certification show the marks scored? Can I expect a hard copy sent to my contact address?
