Hello All,

I would like to share my experience on OCAJP exam.
With new test format i.e. 70 questions and 2 hours duration, many people commented on Thread its hard to finish on time, and at least 8 questions were left out unanswered, which kept my foot on toe during exam time.
I found that, as questions pass by it becomes easy i.e. easy questions are placed at last. I'm not sure if it is a consistent pattern.
Finally, my score was 78%, which was "ok" as i don't have prior development experience.

What i followed,
--> Head First Java (Initially)
--> OCA Java SE 7 Programmer I Study Guide (Exam 1Z0-803) Author: Edward Finegan, Robert Liguori (For Quick review)
--> Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 7 Programmer Practice Exams (1Z0-803) Author: Hanumant Deshmukh (6 test trails)
--> Summary of Study Guide (Sierra, Bates) also in pdf from Link(before exam review)
--> This community help me a lot!
