Hi there,

is it a good idea to prepare for the Oracle exam (1Z0851) with the "old" book from Sun (for the 310-065 exam)?

Is anyone here who did this?

Any experience?

Thanks!

What book exactly? The one by Katherine Sierra , Bert Bates?
1Z0-851 and 310-065 are almost the same so you might use this book.
I used it and it was ok.

I was just at the website of oracle and there it says that the exam is multiple choice... does this mean exclusively? Are there no drag&drop questions anymore as it used to be with scjp?

Thanks for feedback.

I didn't have drag&drop on my exam.
 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
