Just Completed my Oracle Certified Professional, Java 6 Programmer certification with an 86% after about 3 months of solid preparation and 3 months of on/off preparation.

For studying I used the Sierra/Bates Study Guide and Mock Exam books as well as the Sybex SCJP6 book as an additional reference.

For Mock Exams I completed the following:
Oracle ePractice Exam 1 - 86%
Oracle ePractice Exam 2 - 89%
MasterExam Quiz A - 70%
MasterExam Quiz B - 68%
Sierra/Bates Mock 1 - 71%
Sierra/Bates Mock 2 - 78%
Sierra/Bates Mock 3 - 73%
Sierra/Bates Mock 4 - 73%

The Oracle ePractice Exams are the closest to the actual difficulty of the real exam.

I also wrote around 150 small sample programs to demonstrate concepts, did all of the exercises in the Mock Exam book, all of the self-tests, and created around 500 Flash cards.

Hi, I am now starting out on the Journey learning Java and I find I learn better when I write programs to solidify each topic I learn - the more the merrier. But the Book I'm using doesn't have enough code exercises for my liking. Are there places that have code exercises broken out by topics for people to do? You said you did 150 small programs for your cert test, is that from a book or web site? Anybody knows of where?
