Hi Ranchers!

I will be taking the OCAJP 7 exam in about a few weeks from now.
I have around one year of experience as a Java Developer mainly using the java se and java ee (beginner).
I've been studying for almost months already.

Any tips for me?

I've tried the mock exam in Mala Gupta's book and scored around 80%.
Do you think this is enough?

and does the exam sometimes include incorrect Upper case (e.g. "Public class MyClass{/*code here*/})
but does not have the option compile error or etc.?

Based on other experiences from people using the same book, you should have no problems passing this exam.

No, the actual exam has high quality questions. When a code snippet is involved in the question, the option "Compilation fails" is (almost) always one of the possible answers ;)

Study, repeat and practice. On the exam itself keep and make sure you had a look at every question! So when you are having difficulties answering a question in the 1st iteration, don't stay too long with this question, just mark them to review again and proceed to the next one. Reason why? Maybe the 5 last questions on the exam might be very easy ones and if you ran out of time you didn't have a chance to have a look at and answer them.
